Exhibit: “The Power of Faces”

September 10, 2019, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm

Images from “The Power of Faces,” a global photojournalism project by Theresa Menders and Daniel Farber Huang will be on display on the second floor of the library through Nov. 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 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.”

Menders and Huang, who are married, will discuss the photos on display at an art talk on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. in the Newsroom.
