The Faces and Emotions of Peace
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA - November 12, 2009
Cameron Karsten Photography is a portrait of peace. On Thursday, Nov. 12th from 6 - 8:30PM, an Artist’s Reception at The Upstairs Gallery in The Pavilion commemorates a new display of photography. Captured from around the world, the Bainbridge Island exhibition kicks-off Cameron Karsten’s upcoming adventure to East Africa and is part of the One World Multicultural Festival; an all-day event celebrating world diversity with international foods, cultural music, exotic dance, conceptual art and independent film.
Along with partner Lily Brewis, the islanders’ journey will begin in Ethiopia, volunteering at an orphanage and continue for five months traveling and working with non-profit organizations like island-based Global Team for Local Initiatives. Via photography, article writing and HD film footage, they will document the progress of grassroots organizations to create awareness back home of the change occurring within the region. And as part of their quest, Cameron and Lily will bring the many forms of art to orphaned children and the colorful therapies of textile design to the parents in a drive to heal the divisions of mother/daughter, father/son.
In theme with the journey, the exhibit
presents 15 photographs arranged thematically in five distinct categories. Each will portray a story through words, expressions and composition representing the various meanings of peace, leaving the viewer with both the senses of pain and poverty, serenity and hope. From the towering Sierra Nevadas to ceremonial worship in the Indonesian archipelago; from the complexities of exile to the minute livelihood of fruit picking, each conceptual image penetrates reality to the core eternal peace.
