CANCELLED: Book signing and talk: "North by Nuuk" by Denis Defibaugh
Contemporary Greenland is the subject of a new book by a RIT photography professor, who spent more than a year on the island. North by Nuuk: Greenland after Rockwell Kent by Denis Defibaugh, published by RIT Press in December 2019, documents scenes from daily life and from nature, such as an Inuit hunter and his sled dogs, stark landscapes and portraits of the people who live in remote communities. Defibaugh’s project was inspired by American artist and writer Rockwell Kent, who visited Greenland in the 1930s. Kent’s photography, art and literature provide a counterpoint to the images Defibaugh took 85 years later.
Defibaugh will give a brief talk on his project, which was supported by a National Science Foundation grant. Books will be available for sale from RIT Press. Light refreshments will be provided.
