Alice Yard presents a conversation with Ivan Sigal

By ARC Magazine Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 Categories: Artist Talk, Updates
 

On Friday, 9 October, 2015 at 7 pm, photographer, writer, media producer and executive director of Global Voices Ivan Sigal will give an informal talk at Alice Yard, Trinidad on his photography and reporting projects, the compulsion to document, and how photographs can find truths behind the grand narratives of nations and official histories.

Sigal’s book ‘White Road’, published in 2012, is a meditation through images and text on the aftereffects of history, the restlessness of travel, and the possibilities of human encounter, based on his experience living and working in Russia and Central Asia from 1998 to 2005. A more recent project, The Karachi Circular Railroad, reported for the Pulitzer Centre on Crisis Reporting, circumnavigates the Pakistani city, telling stories about its past, present, and possible futures.

All are invited to the talk.
