Panel discussion & book signing @ Fovea Exhibitions Gallery Beacon, Oct 20

Photograph by Ron Haviv.
Young teenage girls leave a refugee camp to gather firewood. For some the work will take
more than seven hours, and lead them past government checkpoints, which leaves them
vulnerable to attacks. Girls as young as 8 years old have been attacked, raped and killed
trying to collect fuel and water.

In conjunction with the current exhibition of work by Ron Haviv, The Children of Darfur, Fovea Exhibitions Gallery Beacon will be hosting a panel discussion and book signing.

The panel discussion, scheduled for 4pm, will focus on the current situation in Darfur. Participating panelists are: Ron Haviv, Alison Morley of the International Center for Photography and Ellie Tolmie of UNICEF.

After the discussion, Ron Haviv will be signing copies of the book
Darfur, twenty Years of War and Genocide in Sudan (a compilation of images by world renown photographers)

Haviv's exhibit will be on view through Nov 4.

Open Friday through Sunday, 11am to 6pm, and by appointment.
Group tours available, please call 845 765 2199 or
