Ed Kashi‘s new installation, The Enigma Room, which embraces coding as the new mode of creation and consumption of photography, will be on view at Photoville in Brooklyn from September 12 – 22, 2019. The installation’s abstract connections link images across time, place and context. The result is a dreamlike reverie that exposes the enigma of life.
Ed Kashi‘s work “No Surrender: The Protestants” was featured in the Fence outdoor exhibition this past week in Brooklyn, New York. “No Surrender: The Protestants” provides an intimate look at Northern Ireland’s fractious Protestant neighborhoods. This body of work aims to show the loyalist sections of Belfast are far from a ruling upper class and that the real struggle for equality can only begin after peace.
“Hot Dogs on a Tricycle” has won an Award of Excellence at the Impact DOCS Awards. VII’s Ed Kashi was the Director of Photography of this short film that tells the story of Mario, a 19-year-old boy who had to flee his home in El Salvador due to the violence of the gangs. His story represents the stories of hundreds of thousands of forced migration victims in the Northern Triangle countries.
It’s a film by HOME Storytellers in partnership with Asylum Access.
