presents his new
book of photographs
To the Village Square:
From Montague to Fukushima
Master photographer Lionel Delevingne presents To the Village Square, his new book of photographs documenting the struggle of communities here and around the world against nuclear power. Since his first anti-nuclear protest in Montague, Massachusetts in 1975, Lionel has been recording on film the courage and determination of ordinary citizens who have fought the incursion of nuclear power into their communities. He shows us both the devastation wrought by nuclear power disasters in Chernobyl and Fukushima, and the the power that ordinary citizens, united and organized, can wield to prevent such catastrophes.
Lionel Delevingne has been a photojournalist for over 40 years. His coverage of socio-political events has been published in The New York Times, The Village Voice, Mother Jones, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, and The Washington Post. His work has been exhibited in shows here and in Europe, and is held in several public collections, including those of the University of Massachusetts and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.
The event will include remarks by anti-nuclear activist Anna Gyorgy, author of No Nukes: Everyone's Guide to Nuclear Power, and also by heroic political activist Frances Crowe, to whom the book is dedicated.
