Structures of Identity explores how photographers, across a range of cultures and historical periods, have used the vocabulary of portraiture to affirm or challenge social stereotypes constructed around notions of race, gender, class, and nationality. This selection of photographs, shown for the first time in New York, establishes a dialogue between significant historical images, key modern and contemporary works from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America.
With photographs by J.D. 'Okhai Ojeikere from Walther Collection
