Andrew Tonn in Ukraine Exhibition

Over on The Columbus Dispatch (Ohio) is a story called "Photos document tough conditions in forgotten corner of Ukraine". It's about an Ohio-based charity Sharing America's Resources Abroad and its former media director, Andrew Tonn... As part of a medical relief mission to institutions and settlements in the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine, he photographed some of the population for his series “The Faces of Transcarpathia.” He took only a single Leica camera and a 50mm lens on the trip, shooting everywhere.

A selection of 18 black-and-white images from the series is on view at the Martin de Porres Center on the campus of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. More details here. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 6-8 PM.
