Discussion & Book Signing
Experience the beauty and culture of Brazil as if you're walking through its landscape yourself in the stunning new book of photography by Kristin Capp. Taken over the course of eight years, Capp's artistic black-and-white photos capture the personality and complexity of the country in images that range from posed portraits to pure abstractions. In its pages, Capp chronicles the relationship between the natural shapes of the landscape and the city's constructed forms, immerses us in the culture of the world's largest African diaspora, and captures the diverse dreams, values, and contradictions living and moving across the country every day. Get your copy of the book and learn about the stories behind the photos and Capp's experience taking them at this discussion and signing with Capp.
