Myra Greene explores the construct of whiteness in her book 'My White Friends'

When Myra Greene asked her white friends to be a part of her photographic exploration of whiteness for her book My White Friends, the answers were often ambiguous and the conversations they spawned fruitful, if slightly foreign, to her subjects.

“Being asked to be in a photograph because of race has happened many times in my life,” Greene said, who is African-American. “I don’t think a lot of white people have been asked to do something because of their racial identity. It changes the way they think of that experience of being photographed.”
