"Faces of Central America"

                   "In 1973, photographer and Episcopal minister Rod Sinclair began serving as interim rector of a church in Managua, Nicaragua.  He often took photographs of the people that he encountered.  Their hardships are reflected in their facial expressions and body language-- but glimpses of faith, hope, and revolutionary struggle are evident.  The photographs in this exhibition capture the experience of people living with continuous stress and violence.  Old men sit patiently in refugee camps, waiting for the time they will be able to return to their ancestral homes.  Young children's serious and questioning expressions speak of hope for a peaceful life that they have yet to experience.  The oppression, intolerance, and persecution so forcefully expressed in these photographs are not limited to Central America.  They are universal issues experienced by residents of countries around the world torn apart by war and dissidence."
