ACP Lecture Series: Alison Wright
Pace Academy - Auditorium
Featuring work by: Alison Wright

Artists Talk: Thu, Oct 3, 6pm - 8:30pm

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.

Doors open at 6pm to view the exhibition. Lecture at 7pm. Booksigning at 8pm.
