Art Talk: Theresa Menders and Daniel Farber Huang

Sunday, September 22, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The photographers whose work is on display on the second floor of the library discuss the images that are part of “The Power of Faces,” a global photojournalism project featuring portraits of individuals and families in refugee camps around the world.

Realizing that most of the nearly 69 million people displaced to refugee camps lost treasured family photos when they fled their homes, Menders and Huang bring photo printers into refugee camps where they distribute portraits for individuals to keep. The context of refugee camps is intentionally cropped out of the images to focus on individuals, and not merely their label as “refugees.”

Presented in partnership with the Arts Council of Princeton.
