Book Signing: Rachel Papo

Saturday, August 6 at 2-5pm
Photographer Rachel Papo with authors Ariel Shanberg and Holly Graff

Spend a lovely Saturday afternoon with us to celebrate the publication of Rachel Papo’s book Homeschooled.

While living in Woodstock, NY with her husband and baby daughter, Papo developed her interest in counter-culture education. As criticism of the U.S. education system grew on a national level she decided to explore this controversial topic in depth and challenge her own prejudgments on the issue. In 2011, she began to photograph a small number of families living in the Catskills, who practice homeschooling. Papo focused particularly on the children, in an attempt to capture what she describes as “their spirit, and the meaning of growing up outside the conventional four classroom walls.”

Pipo Nguyen-duy

Lecture: Pipo Nguyen-duy

Friday, August 5 at 7:30pm at CPW

Join us to hear about Pipo’s newest projects, his life, his experience during the American War in his early Viet Nam days, early career as teen ping pong champion, and more. It’s one not to be missed.

Growing up close to the demilitarized zone of the 18th Parallel, Pipo Nguyen-duy describes hearing gunfire every day of his early life. He immigrated to the US as a political refugee. In his art, Pipo has often returned to the psychological or physical manifestations of war and our fragile sense of safety. His first rendition of the East of Eden series concentrated on the psychological aftermath of 9/11, when people came to realize that they cannot be certain of their physical or emotional safety. The second part took him back to Viet Nam, where he photographed survivors of the war without revealing what side of the war they fought on. Opposite to our expectations, these photographs represent a striking resilience and celebration of life that has overcome the unthinkable.

He has received key grants and fellowships, such as a Guggenheim Fellowship in Photography and a grant from the National Endowment for The Arts.

“His passion for life and the people in it clearly defines who he is as an artist and the photographs he creates.” – Hannah Frieser
