Julia Cumes Date: November 1, 2017 @7PM
Location: Merry Room at the Duxbury Library

Description:

Julia Cumes is a South African-born photographer based on Cape Cod. She is passionate about showing the viewer a different version of the world and sharing intimate stories and extraordinary moments that would otherwise be accessible to only a few. She strives to create photographs one can't turn away from--photos that are powerful and capture in a unique way this extraordinary world we live in.

Julia first fell in love with photography as a teenager, in apartheid-era South Africa, when she began shooting black and white film and printing her own work. She has worked on numerous long term personal projects and multi media pieces and is particularly invested in exploring stories about women's issues and wildlife conservation. In 2015 she was awarded the "Art Within Reach" grant for her solo show/project "Invisible Selves: An Exploration of Female Identity and Experience".

Her blog, Apertures and Anecdotes features a wide range of photographs and the stories behind them. She has spent time teaching photography to children in Rwanda, as well as, to tribal Samburu Women at the On'gan Women's Cooperative in Kenya. She also teaches a variety of photography workshops and classes locally, on Cape Cod, and is a resident photographer at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod where she has a studio/gallery.

Over the course of her career, she has photographed for a variety of newspapers, magazines, non-profit organizations, businesses, corporations and private clients. Her work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, National Geographic, The London Times as well as local publications such as the Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod Magazine, Chatham Magazine and South Shore Living. She has also completed a B.A. at Brandeis University; has an M.F.A. in writing at Cornell University; and has a Masters in Photojournalism at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School.

Tonight, Julia will present “From Cape Town to Cape Cod and In-between “. A journey from her early days growing up and photographing in apartheid-era South Africa to her stories focused on women's issues and wildlife conservation around the world. One of the projects included will be her story about India's "Devadasi System"--a system of religiously sanctioned prostitution practiced since the 9th century.
