Eve, Edenic Island, 2019

Syracuse University Libraries’ new Biblio Gallery Exhibit on the 4th Floor of Bird Library, titled “Edenic Island, 2019,” is on display from November 1 through November 17, 2019. The collection of image is from the artist Charlotte Howard’s, ’20 School of Visual and Performing Arts, series. “This body of photographic work focuses on the juxtaposition of Jeju’s natural beauty and landscape and its dark past. Jeju is known to many as a paradise. The intent of this project was to bring an awareness of the island’s tragic history and to see beyond the plethora of tourist attractions that conveniently hide these truths, perhaps to cope with them.  These images capture the awe-striking landscape of Jeju, while hinting to, what was for a long time, a hidden history.”
