The Gallery of the College of Staten Island in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) is pleased to present the second exhibition of the fall semester: A World In Between: The Photography of Hinda Schuman, Monday, Nov. 17 to Saturday, Dec. 13. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
This exhibit presents Hinda Schuman’s photographs of women who participated in the experimental program “New Directions for Women” in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2011. They portray the daily life of women who lived together in a communal house during their last year of incarceration. Hinda Schuman, a journalistic photographer for the The Philadelphia Inquirer, spent endless hours with the women she documents with such empathy and insight. Her work crosses photographic genre boundaries and sheds light on the lives of these women as they prepare to reenter society at large. Please join us in the Gallery to celebrate these beautiful and moving images.
