The University of North Carolina Wilmington will present the “Nicaragua Photo Testimony” photographic documentary work of Oregonians Paul Dix and Pamela Fitzpatrick at a lecture at 6 p.m. Monday (March 26) in 100 Morton Hall.
For nearly 20 years, Fitzpatrick and Dix have documented the effects of the U.S.-funded Contra War on the poor of Nicaragua. Their work was overseen by Quaker meetings in Eugene, Ore., and Bozeman, Ore.
After taking photos in the mid-1980s and early 1990s, Dix and Fitzpatrick returned to re-photograph many of the same people who were affected by the war there.
Their work is documented in a photo book, “Nicaragua: Surviving the Legacy of U.S. Policy” and on their Nicaragua Photo Testimony web site.
The event is co-sponsored by
