The Children of Afghanistan
New York, NY
Born in France, Camille Perrottet worked as a free-lance photographer in Paris in the 1970’s. Arriving in New York City in 1979, she honed her political art in the mid-1980s, painting community murals in New York City with Artmakers Inc. Her sense of social engagement, however, began as a teenager in the 1960‘s, protesting the Vietnam war. It has continued with advocating for women’s rights and freedom of expression, expressing outrage at the hypocrisy inherent in the suppression and control of sexuality.
