He will focus on his recent collaborations with the Human Rights Watch and will discuss highlights from his 'Burmese Defenders' project, his portfolio on the Egyptian Revolution, and the lasting impact of his trip to Russia to photograph civil society in the wake of the 20 year anniversary of the fall of the Soviet Union. 

Platon, from Heroes of the Egyptian Revolution. Ramy Essam became famous as "the Singer of the Revolution." He was tortured by soldiers after Mubarak fell.

The Space in Between
Daniel Feldman, Stefanie Klavens, and Lynn Saville
November 15, 2012 - January 19, 2013
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

Daniel Feldman, Up and Down, 2011.

The Space in Between features artwork that focuses on societal built environments in urban settings. The images capture supposedly empty or vacant scenes in public spaces where humans are present without being pictured. The very absence of human subjects forces the viewer to contemplate the space in between these human-made structures. While firmly rooted in the 21st century, these photographs also portray a timeless feel, as if the artists froze the frame at the initial moment of abandonment, preserving a particular constructed expression of culture for generations to come.
