People's Lives: A Photographic Celebration of the Human Spirit
Virtual Exhibit: March - April 2021
Photographer Bill Wright has traveled the globe, visiting places off the beaten path to discover people of the world in their own environments. These photographs take us down unfamiliar paths to local rest stops, markets, workshops, restaurants, and private homes. Places most of us may never visit. "People's Lives" turns its viewers into world travelers. The exhibition is produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Enjoy a sample of Wright's photos in this virtual exhibit.
