Photographer Robert Kalman will be exhibiting his Nicaraguan portraits at Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White St., New York from June 8 through July 2, 2016. There will be a reception on Tuesday, June 7 from 6 pm - 8 pm.

The photographer says of this body of work (via sohophoto.com): “Larreynaga is a small Nicaraguan farming community located in a harsh, arid region that’s sparsely populated because it borders on being inhospitable. In this out of the way impoverished village with limited access to health resources, there are a considerable number of elders, people ranging in age from their 70′s to 100′s. This series of formal black and white portraits is a dignified tribute to these remarkably resilient individuals.”

In addition to the opening reception, the artist will be present during gallery hours on June 11, 16th, 26th and July 2nd. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 1 pm - 6 pm and by appointment.
