Book launch and signing this Saturday at 7:30

Nick Waplington’s a New York-based photographer and artist and he’s got a new photo book coming out called “The Patriarch’s Wardrobe.” It’s full of photographs and paintings of landfill sites south of Hebron in the West Bank where Palestinian children pick from the garbage of religiously overzealous Israelis who build settlements throughout the territory. ‘Handlers’ employ the children to gather anything of use before the waste is buried. Waplington agreed to capture the scenes at such a distance so as to preserve the identities of his subjects.
