Chicago photo exhibit speaks to the plight of the mentally ill
on Thursday,January 21,2010 22:01
In an attempt to call to light the troubles plaguing the world''s population of mentally ill patients, noted photojournalist Eugene Richards has created No One Much Cares, a black and white portfolio that will go on display at the Gage Gallery at Roosevelt University in Chicago.
The exhibit follows Richards as he explores psychiatric facilities in Mexico, Armenia, Paraguay, Hungary, Kosovo and Argentina, and exposes the often inhumane condition that the mentally handicapped have to deal with. The photographer was able to gain access to these facilities by working with charity and human rights organizations in these struggling countries.
The powerful collection features an elegant contrast of light and dark that highlights the isolation of the individuals involved. Richard''s work, which recently ran in an issue of Newsweek magazine, consists largely of intricately detailed portraits juxtaposed over broad, flatly colored surfaces to emphasize the character and subtlety of the captured image.
No One Much Cares was the recipient of the 2009 Amnesty International Award for photojournalism.
The collection opens on February 11 and will run through March.
