Lecture: Rania Matar, photographer

April 4, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

As a Lebanese-born American woman and mother, Rania Matar’s photographs explore both sides of her ethnic background, cross-cultural experience, and personal narrative, in addressing issues of personal and collective identity.

At the Weatherspoon, she will talk about her experiences of living through wars and her current interaction with Syrian and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. While her photographs may not provide answers or solutions, she hopes that they can act as moments of contemplation, encouraging the viewer to find beauty in our shared humanity.

This lecture is supported by the generosity of the Triplette Foundation and the UNC School of Art through which renowned photographers are brought to campus annually to lecture and meet with students to discuss current issues in photography.
