Portraits from a Bulgarian Village
Artist’s Reception Saturday, October 8, 2016 from 4:30 to 7:30 pm
In conjunction with WOW-Women of the World Festival, Caudill’s photographs present an intimate portrait of the women who live in Bunovo, a small Moslem village in the Rhodlope Mountains of Bulgaria. Her photographs illustrate the ways in which Moslem customs are perpetuated by the older women of the village, in marked contrast to younger generations. The images center upon the lives of the women who both maintain the ties of family and function as the emotional heart of the family, and indeed of the village itself.
