Artist Talk: Jane Evelyn Atwood
Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, is pleased to present an artist talk with Jane Evelyn Atwood. Atwood was born in New York and has been living in France since 1971. She was the first recipient of the W. Eugene Smith Award in 1980 for her work on the blind. Atwood works primarily in the tradition of documentary photography, following individuals or groups of people—usually those on the fringes of society—for long periods of time. Fascinated by people and by the idea of exclusion, she has managed to penetrate worlds that most of us do not know, or choose to ignore.
The W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund is sponsored by Aperture Foundation as well as Anastasia Photo, American Society of Media Photographers, Brilliant, Canon, Center for Creative Photography, International Center of Photography, MediaStorm, Photo District News, Swann Galleries, School of Visual Arts, and Synergy Communications.
