Stephen Dupont:Piksa Niugini, the new Radius title co-published with The Peabody Museum Press, will arrive in July.
In conjunction with the book, The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University has opened an exhibition running until September 2, that corresponds to the book. Dupont’s photographs and artist’s journals document the tremendous social change caused by globalization, HIV-AIDS, migration, poverty, and new wealth in Papua New Guinea.
The show contains 124 unframed photographs, and was described by The Boston Globe as informal, immediate, and alive, giving a sense of “Dupont’s imaginative process at work. A kind of self-portrait…” Also read about his process of making portraits and the effects of rapid globalization on Papua New Guinean society in The Australian.
