Current Artists

This Spring the MacMillan Law Library hosts the artwork of two talented local photographers.

Damon (72c) is a native Atlantan who has been the dean’s Executive Assistant at Emory Law since early 2006, and she enjoys travel and photography.  She says:

“Most of my images are from the eastern side of Cuba, including Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Playa Girón (Bay of Pigs), Havana, and San Francisco de Paula.  The color images were captured digitally, while the black & white prints were recorded on 35 mm film and printed by David Damon (my brother) at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center’s darkroom.  If you would like  more information about his Wednesday night black & white film workshops, you may contact David at focalpoints@comcast.net.   Reprints of my pics are available after the show; for price list contact beth.damon@emory.edu.

I have been interested in Cuba and its storied history and heritage for many years.  I have also been interested in the Cuban Jewish experience, and in that regard I spent an afternoon with the educational director at one of the synagogues.  Meetings with members of that and other local communities, artists, and university professors provided an insightful look at daily life, the arts, Cubans, and perspectives of U.S./Cuban relations not often seen in our media.”

David says, “This selection includes portraits of faces that I found captivating, as well as photographs with patterns and colors enjoyable as mere abstractions (rather than as depictions) of the outdoor laundry district in Mumbai, fish drying in the sun in Kokilamendu, a tiny fishing village south of Mahabalipuram, India, or the Royal Botanic Gardens at Peradeniya, near Kandy, Sri Lanka.”
