The majority of the exhibit is housed within Criss Library, while an additional display is located in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center.
Lisa Kristine's photographs reveal two undeniable truths – the extreme brutality of the situation, and the resilience of the human spirit.
Kristine has traveled to six continents, through nearly 100 countries, capturing modern day slavery through images. In an effort to uncover the breadth and depth of human pain, she has plunged over 100 feet down an illegal mineshaft in Ghana, and endured Nepal’s temperatures of more than 120 degrees. The images portray survivors who are now rebuilding their lives and helping others to freedom.
Displays of her work are located in the Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Library and in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center (Weitz CEC). The exhibition will run for two months, with opportunities to attend ancillary programming and events, and is open to the public. Keynote speakers, nonprofit organizations, attorneys, professors, and survivors will lead these events in conjunction with the theme of modern day slavery. A schedule of events and more information will be available soon.
ENSLAVED was created to inspire sustainable change at the local, national, and global level through education and visual storytelling, with the hope that one day we can eradicate slavery.
