REESP Eskenazi PigeonPhotographer Jason Eskenazi will be making a presentation on “Wonderland: A Photographic Journey through Post-Soviet Spaces” on Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 6:00 p.m., in Fahy Hall 236.
 
Jason Eskenazi is an acclaimed globetrotting American photographer, whose work appeared in Time Magazine, National Geographic, Newsweek, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and numerous other publications. Recipient of several prestigious awards, including a Fulbright and a Guggenheim Fellowship, Jason dedicated his art to the exploration of locations undergoing profound and often traumatic social and political transformations. During the past decade he worked in Afghanistan and Israel, where he founded a workshop Kids with Cameras, which brought together Jewish and Arab kids to study the art photography. Jason also spent several years working in and traveling around the former Soviet Union. The result of those efforts was a photographic album of striking images of Soviet decay (Wonderland: A Fairytale of Soviet Monolith), that was published last year to raving reviews. It was recently featured in The New Yorker.
 
This free event is sponsored by the Russian and East European Studies Program, the Slavic Club, and the Department of Communication.
 
Partial funding for this event has been provided by the College of Arts and Sciences thanks to the generous support of the President's Advisory Council members.
