PCNW is honored to exhibit the work of master photographer Eugene Richards in a solo exhibition timed to mark the 15th anniversary of 9/11. “Enduring Freedom” brings together two distinct bodies of work, both focused on the personal within incomprehensible situations of violence: Stepping Through the Ashes, made in the weeks following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, and War is Personal, a chronicle of the human impact of the resulting military involvement in Iraq from 2003 to today.

This is the first time these works have been exhibited together, and it is the first solo exhibition of Richards’ work in the Northwest. Selected text from interviews conducted by Richards and his partner, Janine Altongy, will also be included in the exhibit.

Richards, who has been recognized through nearly every significant award for photography including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Award, National Endowment for the Arts grants, the ICP Infinity Awards, the Leica Medal of Excellence, and the Robert F. Kennedy Lifetime Achievement in Journalism Award, will present a lecture on Thursday, September 8 and conduct a masterclass Saturday, September 10, from 10:00am–3:00pm. This is a rare opportunity to share work and engage in conversation with an icon of documentary photography. Lecture tickets here; masterclass FULL.
