Untitled 1 (Kitchen)

Damian Wampler

Damian Wampler’s series Darfur in Brooklyn, to which this image belongs, is an oblique portrait of a crisis. Brooklyn is home to more than three hundred Sudanese refugees, most of them living in the borough’s Kensington section, not far from Prospect Park. Through following one of them, the cab driver Omer Omar (shown here in his kitchen), for several months, Wampler presents a powerful portrait of the daily life of a little-known population in the Museum’s extended neighborhood.
