In recognition of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts presents selections from Civil War Redux: Pinhole Photographs by Willie Anne Wright, a twelve year project, by Willie Anne Wright.

Wright, an artist, living and working in Richmond, uses pinhole (lensless) photography to create one of her most interesting series. Her pinhole photographs, which feature the characteristics of her chosen medium and an occasional anachronistic detail, present an evocative view, as portrayed by dedicated re-enactors. Wright’s approach is evenhanded.

The images include those of men and women, Caucasian and African-American, Federal and Confederate, famous players and the lesser known.
