Northeastern University
International Village Gallery
1175 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02120
Open to the public, free admission, free copies of the book available

Currently on view at Northeastern’s International Village Gallery space are photographs and texts from Lionel Delevingne’s decades-long mission of chronicling the safe energy movement in which he captured the rise of anti-nuclear activism. His book, “To The Village Square: From Montague to Fukushima, 1975-2014” is a testament to his focus, his findings and his aim to celebrate common citizens who stand up against all odds and make a difference.

Today, the fight continues. Fracking, Pipelines, Climate Change are the words of the day. As Delevingne said, “This body of work is about power. Not just nuclear power, but, as I have witnessed, the power of community to force action and make a change. It is unfortunately clear to me that the threat of nuclear power remains real. In recent years, I have been appalled to see the co-opting of ‘green’ by the nuclear industry’s lobbying spin-masters. It will be impossible for the viewer seeing these photographs from Chernobyl and Fukushima not to reach the same conclusion. Evidence from these nuclear catastrophes confirms and reinforces that renewable, sustainable safer energy sources must be found now.”
