St. Matthew's Cathedral Arts presents Richard Boul: "Afghan Odyssey - 1967" opening reception
St. Matthew's Cathedral Arts will present Richard Boul's exhibit entitled, "Afghan Odyssey - 1967."
Over 50 years have passed since Boul took these photographs in Afghanistan. According to Boul, these landscapes and portraits should be viewed simply for what they are, from a traveler’s viewpoint without any depiction of politics or the presence of a foreign power which have been the lot of this small yet pivotal country since that time. This was a quiet interlude in Afghan history where one could travel freely and without fear in this ancient tribal land. The people here are proud and fiercely independent, even xenophobic, but at the same time welcoming beyond one’s expectations.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through January 27.
