Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I hope you are doing well. I would like to share some exciting news about exhibitions and talks happening this weekend. Tonight, 11/4, my New Works exhibition opens at Artspace, Raleigh, NC, and the annual Urban Photographers Association’s exhibition opens at the Lewisham Art House in London as part of Urban Photo Fest. On Sunday, I’ll give a talk at CAM Raleigh about Oppressive Architecture.
Last but not least, please make sure to cast your vote by next Tuesday, in particular in the Swing States. As President Obama said at the UNC rally two days ago that I attended: “I hate to put a little pressure on you, but the fate of the Republic rests on your shoulders. The fate of the world is teetering and you, North Carolina, are going to have to make sure we push it in the right direction.”
Thank you so much for your continued support! Enjoy the weekend!
Warmest wishes, Gesche Würfel

Thank you to those of you who have responded to my call so far. I’m still seeking intervieweesfrom those living in North Carolina and New York City who have experienced WWII (and the 1930s) and who would be interested in sharing their memories and thoughts with me for theWhat Remains of the Day– 71 Years after the End of WWII project. If you know anybody who would be interested in participating in the project, please get in touch with me at email@example.com and I can forward you additional information. Thank you!
