Signing: Paul Dix’s Nicaragua

Nov 10, 2012 | Events

Photographer Paul Dix will sign copies of his book (co-written with Pamela Fitzpatrick) Nicaragua: Surviving the Legacy of U.S. Policy, at Elk River Books from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 8.

Dix has spent much of his career documenting “people and the impact of wars and poverty,” with a particular focus on the U.S.-sponsored Contra War in Nicaragua where he worked on staff for Witness for Peace from 1985 though 1990. In this book, Paul returns to Nicaragua to meet with about 100 people chosen out of the thousands he photographed during the war, shares the earlier photos, takes new ones and listens to their stories.

The New York Review of Books calls Nicaragua “an extraordinary book of stunning black and white images of the men and boys, women and girls, who lost limbs and loved ones and managed to pick up the pieces of their lives and move on after 10 years of devastating conflict.”
