Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, is pleased to present an artist talk with Joseph Sywenkyj. Sywenkyj, an American photographer based in Kiev, is the recipient of the 2014 W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography. He will present his completed Smith Fund project along with some of his past work, which explores the Ukrainian revolution and family life over the course of sixteen years. Sywenkyj’s photographs concentrate on how the media is more concerned with geopolitics and European leaders rather than the families that are affected by war and terrorism. Sywenkyj states, “It is through stories of families who have been seriously impacted physically, mentally, and economically by the crisis that we will gain insight into how events in the country are influencing society as a whole.”
