"Art and Social Engagement": A Conversation with Photographer Stephen Petegorsky, Amherst College Class of 1975

April 18, 2013 - 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm (already occurred)

Stephen Petegorsky will discuss his powerful images that address issues of disability resulting from acts of war, accidents or disease. His photographs, taken mainly in developing countries to document the work of The Polus Center for Social and Economic Development, record distressing circumstances but also celebrate these humanitarian efforts as well as fundamental human dignity.
