Winds of Change
Thursday, April 10, 2014 6:30-8:00pm

Gerd Ludwig will share his experiences capturing the colossal changes since the dissolution of the Soviet Union to today.

The presentation will span his coverage from early work published in National Geographic to more recent stories in Kazakhstan and the Ukraine. After first photographing the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster for National Geographic in 1993, he returned several times. Recently he ventured deeper into the failed reactor than ever before and returned with haunting images, which will be part of his presentation and an upcoming monograph, The Long Shadow of Chernobyl.
