Opening Reception and Book Signing Stephen Dupont: Papua New Guinea Portraits and Diaries
May 2, 2013
Join award-winning photographer Stephen Dupont at the exhibition opening reception and book signing.
As the Museum’s 2010 Robert Gardner Photography Fellow, Stephen Dupont explored the human condition. Through photographs and artist’s journals, he documented the Westernization of traditional society in Papua New Guinea, from lawlessness in urban Port Moresby to cultural struggles throughout the Highlands and Sepik River region.
The exhibition is an in-depth study of cultural erosion as well as a celebration of an ancient people. Stephen Dupont is an Australian photographer whose work has appeared in the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Time, and Rolling Stone, among other publications.
