Photographs inspired by The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian

Currently displayed in the ArtRage Gallery windows is a collection of photos taken in August 2016 by participants in Central Library’s Teen Photography Club. The assignment was to read quotes from the CNY Reads 2017 book, The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian and take photos inspired by the story in Downtown Syracuse. Bohjalian’s book is based on the real-life story of Bob “Soupy” Campbell, a well-known photographer who ended up in a homeless shelter during the last years of his life.

The Double Bind has been chosen as 2017’s CNY Reads One Book selection, and we are proud to present these photographs as part of the committee’s slate of programs. For more information on CNY Reads and their programs, please see their website at, or visit your local public library.
