This iteration of Viewpoints features a photographic triptych by Carrie Mae Weems (U.S., born 1953) that was sourced from historic ethnographic photographs of an enslaved woman named Drana. Weems manipulated her source images, which were originally used as mechanisms of racial classification and subjugation, shifting the scale, color, and formatting to create an homage that addresses the dehumanizing history carried in the subject’s body and her image.
