*masks are strongly recommended, but not required.
We’re thrilled to have an extraordinary duo, Nancy Richards Farese and Bob Farese, in our studio next month for their book signings. Each capture wildly different mediums—Nancy, a perspective on children’s play, which she documented through her philanthropic travels, and Bob, a doctor and research scientist with an impressionistic eye for visual storytelling.
Nancy has worked extensively with international development organizations, such as CARE International, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, RefugePoint, and the Carter Center, to document via photography global social issues. Her photography book Potential Space: A Serious Look at Child’s Play was released by MW Editions.
Bob’s Zen-like approach to photography has transformed the way he views the world and came to be as a way to connect with new surroundings after a move to Boston, MA. His first monograph, Am I Not Light released by Lecturis, includes more than 100 of Farese’s exquisite images. This is his first photo book.
We sat down with Nancy and Bob to talk about their books in an interview. Read our conversation here.
