  • An untitled photograph by Darryl Bautista, from the “Unquiet Images” exhibition showing at the Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery at Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie through December 14.

Darryl Bautista and Lowell Handler will showcase photographs of immigrant workers in their joint exhibition “Unquiet Images” at the Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery at Dutchess Community College through December 14.

In 1999, while working in Guam, Darryl Bautista began covering immigration issues relating to Chinese nationals from the Fujian Province. Hundreds arrived by fishing boat to the US island territory attempting to make it to the American mainland. Bautista continued to cover immigrant workers upon returning to Poughkeepsie. He photographed Latin American and Caribbean workers involved in Poughkeepsie’s Main Street renaissance and “Black Dirt” farmers in Orange County. Bautista graduated from Dutchess Community College, where the exhibit is on display, before attending New York University. He is currently a photographer for the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Lowell Handler, a photography instructor at Dutchess Community College, is currently working with the Southern Poverty Law Center to document the relationships between immigrants, vigilantes, and growing populations of white supremacists. Locations include Farmingville, New York, where an immigrant family’s home was set ablaze by five white teenagers and the border town of Douglas, Arizona, home to many Mexican immigrants. Gainsville, Georgia and Mason City, Iowa are two cities where membership to white supremacist organizations is increasing with the growing immigrant population. Handler earned his bachelor’s degree in photography from the School of Visual Arts and his master’s degree in media studies from the New School.

“Unquiet Images” will be exhibited through December 14 at the Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery at Dutchess Community College, 53 Pendell Road, Poughkeepsie. (845) 431-8000 x3982; www.sunydutchess.edu/artgallery.
