    September 12, 2005

    You are invited to view a photo project entitled “STATISTICA: Russian Federation 2005” on Monday, September 12 at 6 p.m. Fulbright scholar, Jason Eskenazi will discuss the project which includes large format color portraits of Russians across geographical Russia as well as across different strata of society. It is a collaborative project between an American photographer Jason Eskenazi, and a Russian photographer, Valeri Nistratov.
    Jason Eskenazi first traveled to Russia in 1991 just before the August coup and has returned many times since culminating in a photography book project "Wonderland: A Fairytale of the Soviet Monolith" exhibited at Visa Pour L' Image in Perpignan, France. Eskenazi has received numerous awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, 1999; The Dorothea Lange/Paul Taylor Prize, 1999, for his work in a Jewish Village in Azerbaijan; and The Alicia Patterson Foundation Grant, 1996. His work has appeared in many magazines.
    Eskenazi has also organized a "Kids with Cameras" project in the old city of Jerusalem, teaching photography to Muslims and Jewish children.
