What Matters Most: Photographs of Black Life
This powerful collection highlights the importance of snapshots in Black American life: as tools to challenge stereotypes, and as a way to document family and culture. Thoughtfully illustrated, this volume highlights a selection of photographs of African American family life between the 1970s and the early 2000s—pictures that were lost by their original owners and then found by the artist Zun Lee on a street in Detroit in 2012, marking the beginning of the Fade Resistance collection of more than 4,000 Polaroids. Edited with text by Zun Lee, Sophie Hackett. Text by Dawn Lundy Martin, Fred Moten, Stefano Harney. Published September 2022 by DelMonico Books with the Art Gallery of Ontario.
