Circles Curator Tour: To Be Thirteen: Photographs and Videos by Betsy Schneider
May 17, 2018, 4pm
Circles of Support members are invited to join Rebecca Senf, the Norton Family Curator of Photography, and photographer Betsy Schneider for an exclusive Circles curator-led tour of To Be Thirteen: Photographs and Videos by Betsy Schneider.
In 2012, photographer Betsy Schneider embarked on a project to explore the experience of being thirteen. Traveling around the United States, the Guggenheim grant recipient chronicled the lives of 250 13-year-olds, creating still portraits and video documentation of each. “I began with my daughter, her friends and other children I already knew. From there I reached out through my own social networks, schools, clubs and other organizations,” says Schneider. The resulting body of work creates a rich portrait of a group of Americans whose lives began at the turn of the millennium and who are coming of age now.
