The San Geronimo Valley Community Center is extremely pleased to present “Protecting Land, Water, Community: Peace Through Justice and a Sustainable Future”, the documentary photography of Peg Hunter. There will be a reception for the artist on Sunday, September 11 from 4-7 pm.
Peg Hunter is a photographer focused on immigration, social justice, climate justice and the health of families, communities and the planet. Hunter has followed immigration issues since the mid-2000’s, volunteering several summers with the humanitarian group No More Deaths, whose mission is to prevent deaths and suffering in the Sonoran Desert north of the border in Arizona. She comes to documentary photography after decades of work in the visual effects industry, both locally at Industrial Light and Magic and Weta Digital in New Zealand.
She received her BFA in Film/Video from California Institute of the Arts.
Hunter’s images have been published in Yes! Magazine, The San Francisco Examiner, East Bay Express, Ms. Magazine, KQED, Grist, IMM-Print, Common Dreams, Truthout, Food & Water Watch and Earth Island Journal. Her work is in the Library of Congress permanent collection.
