Village self-portraits now on display
at VAE and in a web gallery

Photographers Jay and Sophie Paris, left, organized the third self-portrait project in North Bennington on August 17. They roamed the village for a full day -- offering villagers and visitors alike the opportunity to create a self-portrait.

The following day the subjects and their friends were all invited to an opening of the show at Vermont Arts Exchange.

The gallery show remains on display through the fall, along with selections from the 2000 and 2007 projects. VAE's Sage Street gallery is generally open 9 am to 4 p.m. on weekdays, or by appointment.

A web gallery of the self-portraits and more information about the project may be viewed here
