The photographs of prof. Kevin Bubriski (fine arts) appear in three different shows, in three different countries this winter. The Nepal Earthquake Summit, sponsored by The John Sloan Dickey Center at Dartmouth College, focuses on the response to the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal. Kevin will co-host “Round Table Discussion: Narratives of Disaster” from 5-6 p.m. on February 18 at the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth where some of his photos are on display. Kevin is also a featured artists in the group show “Anonymous: Urban Life in Contemporary Photography” at the Musée d’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland, January 27-May 1. The exhibition explores the expression of individuality in often impersonal urban settings. Finally, Kevin is also exhibiting as part of “Point of View: Photographs Inspired by the Canadian Rockies” at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Banff, Alberta, Canada, from January 30-March 27.
Nearly 9,000 Nepalis were killed in earthquakes last spring, with over 25,000 injured. “The United Nations estimates that while 10 percent of the Nepali population—some three million residents—are in dire need of basic resources like food, shelter, and medical care, the Nepali government has made no arrangements to receive and use the $4.1 billion in donations from foreign countries and international agencies,” writes prof. Kevin Bubriski (fine art) in a photo essay that appeared last weekend in the New York Review of Books. Kevin has been taking photographs in Nepal since he first arrived as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1975. See the feature here.
