Event at Aperture, Tuesday, September 27, 2016 6:30 p.m.

Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the W. Eugene Smith Memorial
Fund, is pleased to present an artist talk with Joseph Sywenkyj. Sywenkyj,
an American photographer based in Kiev, is the recipient of the 2014
W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography. He will present his
completed Smith Fund project along with some of his past work, which
explores the Ukrainian revolution over the course of sixteen years.

Sywenkyj’s photographs concentrate on how the media is more concerned
with geopolitics and European leaders than with the families that are
affected by war and terrorism. Sywenkyj states, “It is through stories of
families who have been seriously impacted physically, mentally, and
economically by the crisis that we will gain insight into how events in the
country are influencing society as a whole.”
