The Power Of Faces – Theresa Menders and Daniel Farber Huang

Location: Second Floor Quiet Reading Room, Second Floor Hallway, Second Floor Tech Center

Date: Sept. 10 – Nov. 30

Images from the global photojournalism project by Theresa Menders and Daniel Farber Huang will be on display on the second floor of the library through November 30. 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 around the globe, 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”. This photojournalism project humanizes the plight of refugees and illuminates their experiences.

Daniel Farber Huang and Theresa Menders have collaborated successfully on numerous documentary photography projects over the last 20 years. Their collaborative work as documentary photographers is included in the permanent collections of numerous fine art museums and historic institutions across the United States. Daniel and Theresa have collaborated on a broad range of issues, with a long-term focus on women’s and children’s issues and the alleviation of poverty locally and around the world. Theresa is also a Director at Otsuka Pharmaceutical, National Fellow of The Explorers Club and Mentor at Princeton University’s Keller Center for Innovation. Daniel is also founder of The EchoStream Group, a specialized corporate finance advisory firm, a Member of The Explorers Club, and Advisor to Princeton University’s Keller Center for Innovation. The team is based out of Princeton, NJ with assignments around the globe.

World War II on the Princeton Home Front

Location: Second Floor Princeton Room

Date: Oct. 15 – Feb. 6

Although the main action took place across oceans, World War II also permeated civilian life at home. Princeton residents engaged in civilian defense, rationed their purchases, and contributed to foreign relief efforts. This exhibition explores how World War II affected Princeton and its neighbors on a local level through historic documents and objects.

This exhibit is presented in partnership with the Historical Society of Princeton
