A rise in the number of women who binge drink has appeared all over America, particularly on college campuses. Alexia Foundation grant-winner Amanda Berg has sought to raise awareness of this phenomenon with her stark photoessay, “Keg Stand Queens.” Amanda’s photos are among those on display for “Eyes on the World,” an exhibition of some of the most moving and provocative images from the Alexia Foundation archive, at 25 CPW gallery in New York City.
There is an opening reception on Thursday, June 20, at 6pm, and the exhibition continues through June 23. Amanda will be speaking about “Keg Stand Queens” on Saturday, June 22 at 4pm at the gallery.
See a preview of more images from “Eyes on The World” on the Alexia Foundation’s Web site.
