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.”

PRESS RELEASE

PHOTOGRAPHY NOW 2016

Exhibition: April 30 – June 19, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 30, 5-7pm

The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW) is pleased to announce Photography Now 2016, juried by James Estrin, senior staff photographer for The New York Times, and a founder and co-editor of The New York Times’ Lens Blog.

This year’s installment of CPW’s annual Photography Now exhibition presents eleven artists from the United States, Colombia and Australia. A theme started to emerge as Juror James Estrin reviewed submissions. He recalls, “The images that I was most attracted to were all dealing with issues surrounding identity and representation. The photographers I chose for this exhibit are all grappling with questions about how race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, brain chemistry and our own memories shape how we see ourselves and how others see us.”
