CPW and Dulce Pinzón

A first real weekend for us in a while, we had the opportunity to visit and meet with Ariel Shanberg, Executive Director at the Center for Photography at Woodstock. A warm welcome to our new neighborhood surroundings it was nice to finally speak some photo. While there we viewed a recent show he curated after stumbling upon Dulce Pinzón's work. A new and recent discovery to him, we understood immediately after seeing the images his eagerness to show her work.

"In the shadow of the events of 9/11 and those which followed, she became interested in “heroes” who make great sacrifices not within the mythologizing setting of the battlefield but who do risk immeasurable life and welfare in their day-to-day lives for the good of others and who do so in a far less spectacular setting. To do so, Pinzón focused her attentions on the controversial subject of the Mexican immigrant worker, who in her view, were a perfect example of the hero who has gone unnoticed. "

The Real Story of the Superheroes by Dulce Pinzón is on view until December 16
