BIDDEFORD — A new exhibition, “ZERO,” a photography exhibit in black and white, by Robert Pennington, will run from Jan. 25 through March 1 at The University of New England’s Biddeford Campus Ketchum Library Art Gallery.

The exhibition is an intimate study that examines the lives of Columbia’s desplazados (displaced). It is a story about people — those who are disenfranchised and often invisible.

During the run of this exhibition, there will be two educational programs.

• Pennington will present a public talk at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, in the UNE Art Gallery in the Ketchum Library on the UNE Biddeford Campus, 11 Hills Beach Road, Biddeford, and Pennington’s process as a documentarian. A Q&A will follow.

• Pennington will address the student body at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 8, at UNE. The event is open to the public and will be tailored for the students/faculty of the Latin American Studies Department and the Office of Civic Engagement. Topics will include Pennington’s process as a documentary photographer; stories from the displaced; and the why, when and how of “ZERO.” Q&A will follow.
