Race"ing" Sideways

This drawing is called Race"ing" Sideways by Nikolai Buglaj (2003). It is graphite on ink, 30 in. x 40 in. I particulary like this photo because it shows the whole value scale as we have been doing in class, it even uses the technique of chiaroscuro. The drawing is very powerful, as it reflects society's sociological illusions of race and class in terms of skin color.
