"TRuE aRT is there in the shadows, there in the scratches, the smudges, the drippings, the flakings, the peelings; lurking everywhere but never seen. STRacT sees it. STRacT captures it. STRacT presents it to you. The TRuE aRT is now there for you to behold...and to hold. And to be amazed that it was there all along."

Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit
Pace Academy - Fine Arts Center
Featuring work by: Alison Wright

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 31 2013

Journey around the world with National Geographic photographer, Alison Wright, as she captures the universal human spirit through her photographs. Ms. Wright, a New York based documentary photographer, has spent a career capturing the universal human spirit through her photographs and writing. A recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography for her work with child labor in Asia, Alison travels to the remotest regions of the globe photographing endangered cultures and people while covering issues concerning the human condition for many of her projects. The photos from her latest book, "Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit," portrays the indomitable spirit that lives within us all. It is what bonds us as mankind, a continued thread, as together we continue on this journey in the pilgrimage of life. Wright's photography has been published in a number of National Geographic books and publications, Outside, Islands, Smithsonian Magazine, American Photo, Natural History, Time and The New York Times. Wright's life was nearly cut short during a horrific bus accident on a remote jungle road in Laos and her recent memoir, "Learning to Breathe: One Woman's Journey of Spirit and Survival," chronicles her inspirational story of survival, years of rehabilitation, and ongoing determination to recover and continue to travel the world as an intrepid photojournalist.
