Sheila Pree Bright is best recognized for her series “Suburbia.” This collection of images depicts subtly the nuances of twenty-first century African American Middle Class suburbia. Her work serves as a counter to the media’s depiction of this population. The complex reality of this “invisible population” emphasizes that often the importance of perception can be as powerful as actual identity. Recently, this series garnered Pree Bright the 2006 Santa Fe Prize for Photography.
