War photography tonight in SF

Sorry for the late notice, but if you’ll be in San Francisco this evening, you can meet photojournalist Bruce Haley & view his work at Carte Blanche gallery (973 Valencia) 6pm-8:30pm tonight. The Facebook event page features more details.

Taken between 1994 and 2002, Bruce Haley’s photographs reflect the complexity of land and life in the former Soviet Bloc. Decaying industrial sites and toxic landscapes, rich farmland and traditional villages: his images capture the joys and challenges facing these newly independent nations, as they struggle to leave behind the legacy of Communism for an unknown future.

Bruce Haley is the recipient of the Robert Capa Gold Medal, one of the most prestigious photography awards in the world. Haley received this honor for his coverage of Burma‘s bloody ethnic civil war.

    I really enjoyed that, beautiful photographs and the introduction by Andrei was really thought provoking.
    Russia is such a country of contrasts. Living in central Moscow, I see a very different Russia. And different in a lot of visual, physical and social ways that I was not expecting, that do not conform to the stereotypes. I’m looking forward to exploring more of the country, and photography like this is very inspiring.
