Exhibition Opening of Vinny and David: Life and Incarceration of a Family

June 8, 2017 @ 6:25 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join ART WORKS Projects for the opening of Vinny and David: Life and Incarceration of a Family by photographer Isadora Kosofsky, winner of the 2017 Emerging Lens Mentorship Program.

Vinny and David
began in 2012 when Kososky met Vinny, then age 13, as he was booked into a juvenile detention center for stabbing his mother’s assailant. Through Kosofsky’s close relationship with Vinny and eventually, his older brother David, she has captured an intimate look at a family struggling to remain connected throughout recurring periods of incarceration.

Special Guest:
Isadora Kosofsky

Free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be served.

About the photographer:
Featured in global publications like Time, Slate, the Washington Post, Le Monde, the New Yorker and in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Kosofsky’s long-term immersion into her subjects’ lives produces an intimate perspective on social justice issues.
