Exhibit: ‘Inshallah’ by Dima Gavrysh at Pictura Gallery

11:00 am to 07:00 pm
Pictura Gallery (122 W. 6th St.)
http://www.picturagallery.com/index.htm

Dima Gavrysh opens a space where the boundary between photojournalism and fine art photography becomes unclear, and perhaps unnecessary. In 2009, he embedded with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan as a photojournalist for the Associated Press. In visually representing the war, Dima moved from direct reportage to a more emotional presentation of his experiences. Eventually, his work evolved into abstracted images that reflect the complicated fog of war. The resulting black and white photographs are personal and haunting, and in their obscurity, they tell a different kind of truth. The exhibition, Inshallah, opens at Pictura on January 4th and will include a set of black and white prints and a video installation. The exhibition will be on view until January 26.

Pictura Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 7 pm.
