Pho­tos from Jakarta

Rappahannock News - - FRONT PAGE -

Bran­den East­wood, son of county res­i­dents Fran­cie Schroeder and Henry East­wood (own­ers of the East­wood Nurs­ery), is the next guest artist at the cur­rent ex­hibit at Old Rag Pho­tog­ra­phy on Main Street in Sper­ryville. East­wood, who has an as­so­ci­ates de­gree in pho­to­jour­nal­ism from Brooks In­sti­tute of Pho­tog­ra­phy and is an alum­nus of the Wal­ter Cronkite School of Jour­nal­ism in Phoenix, spent the last year liv­ing in Jakarta and uses his pho­tos to il­lus­trate ev­ery­day life in the city. East­wood flies into the U.S. this week­end, and will be at the re­cep­tion at Old Rag Pho­tog­ra­phy from 1 to 5 this Satur­day af­ter­noon (Oct. 13).

East­wood, a grad­u­ate of West­town Quaker School in Penn­syl­va­nia, uses his love of pho­tog­ra­phy to ex­plore so­cial is­sues. Al­though his im­ages can por­tray pic­turesque mo­ments (such as chil­dren play­ing soc­cer on a beach, shown here), oth­ers de­pict the sad­ness of poverty, in­clud­ing one of chil­dren beg­ging as passersby on their cell phones ig­nore them. East­wood’s work can be pre­viewed at his web­site bran­de­neast­wood.com and on Face­book.
