Whether it evolves out of geography or perception, this is an exploration of the building blocks of augmenting empathy with Bayete Ross Smith. Bayeté Ross Smith is a photographer and multimedia artist from New York whose collaborative projects Along The Way and Question Bridge: Black Males have shown at the Sundance Film Festival and several others. He is a TED Resident and an embedded media maker with POV/Am Doc and The New York Times, and he has exhibited his work internationally. He is a faculty member at the International Center of Photography and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Bayeté uses photography, video and public installation to investigate the ways we perform our racial, gender and cultural identities through clothing, music and the communities of affinity we choose.
