The Land That Remains
Photographs from Palestine
Tuesday, July 17 at 6 pm @ the Library.
The Orcas Island Library brings renowned photographer Federico Busonero for a presentation in the Library’s reading room. Commissioned by UNESCO, Federico Busonero undertook three extensive journeys through the West Bank of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, between 2008 and 2009. The intent of his photographic study was “to document culturally significant sites” in a territory rarely seen.
