Hazlo Ahora (Do it Now) Photography Exhibit

Blog image

In conjunction with the Biennial of the Americas, the Denver Public Library is displaying an exhibit of inspirational photography from Hazlo Ahora (Do it Now), in Mexico called De la Discapacidad (the ABC of Disability). The exhibit will be on display in Schlessman Hall at Central Library through July.

The Biennal is a month-long cultural celebration of innovation, imagination and the artistic achievement of the Western Hemisphere, hosted by the City of Denver. The exhibit also is a fitting way to recognize the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

A tribute filled with awesome photos and excerpts from interviews over the past 30 years. My only complaint is that I wish there had been more text! Definitely worth a look, even just for the photos.

In 1984 Peter Feldstein photographed the residents of Oxford, Iowa. 20 years later he did it again. It's amazing to see how the people from this small town have changed (and how they haven't) and hear the stories of where they've been and where they're headed. A fascinating project.

Written by or more accurately photographed by then Denver Post food critic, this charming depiction of everything he ate in a year is fascinating and weirdly addictive.
