Twenty years after the Nicaraguan civil way ended, Kevin Kunishi traveled throughout the highlands of Northern Nicarague. Kunishi revisits the location in an attempt to discover and document the legacy that this protracted war left behind. A selection of the resulting portraits of survivors, both Sandinistas and Contras, as well as exquisite landscapes are gathered together here in Kunishi's first monograph.
The photographs within Los Restos are notational records of the experience of the collective memory of those involved. Although philosophies, the survivors are now bound by a landscape filled with physical and psychological scars. The markers of affiliation are slowly fading, but the horros of war remain.
The exhibition will be on view from October 11-November 11, 2012
The opening and book signing will take place on October 11 from 6-8PM
