Project Exposure Presents Ben Rasmussen September 6, 2011
Project Exposure in collaboration with Design for the Other 90%, International Development Enterprises (IDE) and Redline Gallery presents an evening with Ben Rasmussen Thursday September 8th 7-9PM. Ben will discuss his work from around the globe as the fourth in a four part artists series highlighting the work of notable local photographers whose work was chosen by Project Exposure as a way to humanize the Design for the Other 90% exhibit and "put a face on the Other 90%."
Benjamin Rasmussen is a Denver based photographer who spent his childhood with an indigenous people group on an island in the southern Philippines, his university years with evangelicals in northern Arkansas, and a year with the descendants of Vikings in the Faroe Islands, a nation of 45,000 residents in the middle of the North Atlantic. His work draws from these varied experiences in four bodies of work from the last several years that explore the traditional whale kill in the Faroe Islands, the long running conflict in the southern Philippines, the remote Wakhan Corridor in Northeastern Afghanistan and the small town of Chugwater, Wyoming.
