CultureSOUL: "The Birmingham Project - Photos by Dawoud Bey, 2012

A fascinating photo series from the renown African American photographer Dawoud Bey. Most known for his street portraits, and his Harlem U.S.A series, this project was a historical undertaking to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Birmingham Church bombing of four little girls,

Bey set out to commemorate the tragic event by photographing young Birmingham residents who were the same age as the girls when they were murdered (ages 11-14) and couple those pictures with photos of Birmingham adults (no relation) who were the ages those children would have been in 2012. It made for a bittersweet but lovely collection. Full photo series here and bio here.
