WOMEN'S LIVES IN RURAL SIERRA LEONE
Vera Viditz-Ward is Professor of Art at Bloomsburg University, Pennsylvania, USA, and has worked as a fine art photographer and researcher of the history of photography in West Africa since the late 1970s. This exhibition is part of a larger portfolio of images she has been producing since 1977 during prolonged stays in Sierra Leone. The photographs deal with daily life, focussing primarily on the daily experiences of women and children. The exhibition has been organised in association with War, Women and Survival in the Weston Gallery.
