Nicaragua: Surviving the Legacy of U.S. Policy

Photo Exhibit 

April 1, 2013

Event Description

From 1985 until 1990, Paul Dix used his camera to document the effects of the U.S.-funded Contra War on Nicaragua’s poor. In 2002, Dix and Pamela Fitzpatrick followed up with roughly 100 of the thousands of Nicaraguans he had photographed, sharing the earlier photos with family members, taking new photographs, and recording testimonies.

CLAS will have a selection of photos from this collection on display starting April 1. The Center will also be hosting a reception with Paul Dix and Pamela Fitzpatrick on April 15.
