Rural Women: Photographs by Maxine Payne

Oct. 29 – Dec. 2, 2014
(Closed Nov. 26-28 for Thanksgiving)

Photographer Maxine Payne has been working with anthropologist Anne Goldberg on the Rural Women and Globalization Project since 2006. They have documented the lives of rural women using oral history and photography in five sites: San Luis, Costa Rica; Bagamoyo, Tanzania; Vinh Linh, Vietnam; Douglas, Arizona, and Agua Prieta, Sonora, on the United States-Mexico border; and rural Arkansas. BONUS! Rural Women was inspired by Payne’s discovery of the work of Depression-era photographers John and Mancy Massengill, whose original work is on view at Institute 193 from Oct. 2 – Nov. 15.
