Photographer empowers women at work through photos
PUTNEY- The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Next Stage Arts Project, and the Vermont Women’s Fund present “Grit and Grace: The Empowerment of Women at Work in Global Communities,” a talk by National Geographic photographer Alison Wright on Saturday, March 14, at 7:30 pm at Next Stage Arts Project.
Wright’s talk is presented in conjunction with “Grit and Grace: Women at Work,” an exhibit of Wright’s photographs opening at BMAC on March 14 alongside seven other new exhibits.
Wright is a documentary photographer, a National Geographic Traveler of the Year, a recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography, and the author of multiple books, including “The Spirit of Tibet: Portrait of a Culture in Exile,” “Human Tribe,” and the memoir “Learning to Breathe: One Woman’s Journey of Spirit and Survival.”
In her talk at Next Stage, Wright will share the stories behind her photographs, speak about her experiences as a global photojournalist, and place the work within the broader context of her own extraordinary life story, which includes a two-decade friendship with the Dalai Lama and a near-death experience in Laos.
