Liza Faktor Photographs the South, Speaks at FOTOWeek DC

The highly-regarded Russian photographer Liza Faktor will show some of the latest photography emerging from Russia in her talk in the Abramson Family Recital Hall, Katzen Arts Center, American University, at 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, in Washington.

Her talk will be at 2:00 pm on November 7, 2009. Also on the panel will be Lincoln Schatz and Tim Hetherington.

Liza also has work in the show, InsideOutside: New Images from Russis, curated by Lucian Perkins, on display from November 7th, 2009 through November 11th, 2009, at Fotoweek Central 2, 3306 M Street, NW, in Washington, DC. This show of environmental portraits of Russians also includes work by Alexander Gronsky, Olya Ivanova, and Rafal Milach.

Both these events are part of this year's FOTOweek DC, Washington's annual celebration of photography.

So why is Liza showing up in a blog devoted to Southern photography? Because her latest project, Private/Public, includes a large number of images made in Cameron and other places in North Carolina, including Ocracoke,  like the image, above, "Ivan, Ocracoke, NC, 2008."

Liza tells me she visits North Carolina now about two times a year to catch up with friends and to extend this body of work. So, welcome to the South. They say its warmer here than in Russia. Even though Ivan looks a bit chilly in Liza's image.
