Opening Reception for "John Edward Heaton'€™s Guatemala, A Photographic Exhibit"

Latin American Library
4th Floor, Howard Tilton Memorial Library

The Latin American Library is hosting an opening reception for the exhibit, John Edward Heaton‘€™s Guatemala, A Photographic Exhibit.

John Edward Heaton‘€™s work documents the fascinating worlds of Guatemala. He has spent 30 years immersed as a curious witness to this Central American nation, among the most historically rich and complex nations of Latin America. Occupying the space between historical documentary and fine art, Heaton’s stunning photographs capture the ironies and poignancy of Guatemala and its people with a penetrating gaze that is nonetheless thoroughly engaged, sympathetic and not without a good dose of humor. The exhibit will be on display until May 27th.

The Latin American Library was one of the first to collect Heaton‘€™s published work in 2011. Recognizing and acquiring historically important publications in a timely way allows us to bring to the Tulane campus exhibitions like Heaton‘€™s that usually tour only at large museums.
