SIBERIA in the Eyes of Russian Photographers
By Partner Events

For the first time in the U.S., SIBERIA in the Eyes of Russian Photographers provides both an historical and a current view of Siberia, as well as a glimpse into its varied geography and diversity through 165 photographs. Curated by Lea Bendavid-Val and organized by the Foundation for International Arts & Education, these photographs span more than 150 years—between the 1860s and 2011. A book published by Prestel Publishing will coincide with the opening of the exhibition. The exhibit is supported by American University's Initiative for Russian Culture and The Russian of PhotoArtists and PhotoSoyz Agency. “Russia has an amazing history of photography which continues today and deserves to be recognized,” Rasmussen said. “First, ‘SIBERIA’ looks concretely at what photography does and doesn’t do—how photography is a powerful eyewitness and how photography simultaneously deceives; and second, in showing photographs made inside Russia, ‘SIBERIA’ expresses the importance of viewpoint in considering work.”
