Event Description:
Spanning more than three decades, Beryl Goldberg’s photographs depict multi-generational portraits of three families in Burkina Faso, West Africa. They are a personal exploration of regular people in a part of the world most often depicted in crisis. We see how the country has evolved. Parents in their 70s were market people from rural villages, while many of the younger generation are now sophisticated dwellers in the wired urban environment. The photos portray a positive and vibrant Africa not usually seen in our media.
Based in New York, Beryl Goldberg has traveled around the world on assignment for various international organizations and publishers. Her photographs have been exhibited in the United States and abroad, and is also in private collections and museums.
Sponsored by the Leonard Lief Library, Dean of Arts & Humanities,
Africa & African American Studies Dept., and Women's Studies.
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 3 - 4:30 pm.
