Lee Karen Stow, a UK documentary photographer, will speak on her "Poppies" project Nov. 12 at 6 pm at the Russell Special Collections Libraries.
“Poppies: Women, War, Peace” remembers women in times of war, from the First World War to the present day. It combines a portrait series of women whose lives have been affected by war with a botanical series of the red ‘Flanders Fields’ poppy. For the red poppy, despite its delicate appearance, is able to generate new life when everything else has been destroyed.
A reception will follow Stow's talk. The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 14.
