More than a dozen veteran conflict photographers, including VII co-founder Ron Haviv, will show their work in a benefit exhibition, URGENCY!: Ukraine, opening at the Bronx Documentary Center on June 22 at 6PM. Curated by Ukrainian-American photographer Sasha Maslov, New York Times photo editor Cecilia Bohan and BDC director Michael Kamber, the exhibition will feature more than 50 photos showing the devastating conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Photos will be sold to raise money for Ukrainian journalists, via the 24.02 Journalism Emergency Fund.
A panel discussion will be held on June 28th with photographers included in the show; the exhibition will remain on view until July 7th. This exhibition is part of the BDC’s URGENCY! Series.
