Local Art @ EPL: David Pritchett

January 6, 2017

Butcher, North Wales, 1978

We are thrilled to welcome David Pritchett back for a brand-new Local Art @ EPL exhibit.  After making his library debut with 2015’s Daily China, the Evanston photographer and educator has returned with On the Job – a series of color photographs exploring working life in Nigeria, Wales, England, Saudi Arabia, and China.  Captured between 1964 and 2016, Pritchett’s fascinating images record farmers, entertainers, shop keepers, and sailors while examining how “work exists in all times, countries, and cultures.”  You can catch this excellent exhibit on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library through the end of January, and make sure to visit Off the Shelf later in the month for a featured interview with the artist himself.  Stay tuned.
