Fredrick Baldwin and Wendy Watriss
Thursday, March 05 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Galleria I & II
This visual presentation brings together lives of engagement with people and places across the world - from Sami reindeer herders and polar bears in the high Arctic to Civil Rights in the southern U.S., patterns of human settlement and politics in Texas, and the legacies of the Vietnam War. From these works, a World Press award leads to the founding of FotoFest - the opening of new opportunities for other photographic artists and establishment of a new international platform for photography. Pictures made by Wendy Watriss and Frederick Baldwin from the 1950s to 1980s precede images from thirty years of exhibitions and projects organized by FotoFest International, from the beginnings of photography to the current avant-garde.
