LIFE IN LIGHT:
PHOTOGRAPHIC TRAVELS THROUGH LATIN AMERICA
October 27, 2015 — February 14, 2016
In Life in Light: Photographic Travels Through Latin America, documentary photographer Bryan Clifton presents a sample of the visual results of his own experiences traveling through the Americas. Having traveled the globe documenting the work of international development agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and progressive for-profits, Clifton has developed not only a passion for this kind of work, but also gained a conscientiousness of the often difficult situations of the people it touches. For him, experience is the studio—one that is immensely humbling, enlightening and fulfilling.
