Larry Towell Visits Peterborough

"Peterborough has an exclusive chance to see, hear, and experience the vision of renowned Canadian photojournalist Larry Towell at “Blood In The Soil”, a special fundraising event presented by SPARK Photo Festival at the Market Hall on Monday, October 27.

Over the years, Larry has worked as the only Canadian freelance photographer with the prestigious Magnum Photos Agency in areas of conflict. His work has resulted in thirteen books, hundreds of journal publications, and exhibitions around the world.

Larry’s latest book Afghanistan has just been released by Aperture and is featured in the October 3rd issue of the New Yorker Magazine.

Larry has documented war and the civilian victims of war in El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Palestine, Lebanon, Vietnam, New York City on September 11, and Afghanistan, as well as the anti-globalization movements in the streets of North America, the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the US southern coast, and more recently, the Idle No More Movement in Canada." - Deana Huntsbarger for Kawartha Now
