Homeschooled

on view: April 18 – June 14, 2015

opening reception: Saturday 5-7pm, April 18, 2015

 The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW) is pleased to announce its spring 2015 solo exhibition Homeschooled. The exhibition will be on view from April 18 – June 14, 2015 in CPW’s Kodak Gallery.

For over a decade, the American-born Israeli photographer Rachel Papo has been examining the experience of youth within the framework of various cultural institutions. Papo’s photographic research is comprehensive yet
