Exhibitions in Perpignan and Los Angeles

Visa pour l’image, the international photojournalism festival held annually in Perpignan, France, will feature an exhibition of my long-term project:

Behind the Curtains: Stories from the Last Communist Holdouts

At the end of the Cold War, most states under communist rule shed their Marxist principles and scrambled to join a new international order. A few did not. Whether due to the steel fist of totalitarianism, unaddressed class inequality or selective nostalgia, these places continue to hold out against the tides of history. Documenting contemporary Moldova, North Korea, Cuba, China, Nepal, Vietnam and Laos, the exhibition explores communism holding on, mutating and adapting to the 21st century.

Along with shows by William Albert Allard, Cedric Gerbehaye, Stephanie Sinclair, Gali Tibbon, Munem Wasif, and others, the prints will be on display from 28 August to 17 September. All exhibitions are free and open to the public.

The show will run from 24 June to August, 2010
