at Charles Allis Art Museum
Featuring the work of internationally recognized author, photographer, and filmmaker Chip Duncan, president of the Milwaukee-based Duncan Entertainment Group Inc., alongside acclaimed African photographer Mohamed Amin (1943-96), a Kenyan photojournalist responsible for exposing Ethiopia’s famine crisis globally in the 1980s, this exhibition showcases photography as a catalyst for broad, lasting, impactful change.
Three separate galleries of photographs and documentary videos will guide viewers through Chip Duncan’s approach to photographing in the field as well as his view of Africa from the perspective of a writer and filmmaker. Alongside, Mohamed Amin’s work, pulled from the vast Camerapix archive now run by his son Salim, shows images of Africa through the decades, following war, political upheaval, famine, and disaster, seen through the lens of a man dedicated to inciting change through images.
