Robert Gerhardt : Life on the Border: The Karen People of Burma

January 18 – February 18, 2011

Join us for an exhibition of the black and white photographs of Robert Gerhardt. The stark images document the lives of the Karen people who live in the wake of a 60-year civil war, the longest running civil war in the world, along the border between Thailand and Burma. Three of his photographs have been chosen to be part of Amnesty International’s Human Rights Art Festival this spring. Gerhardt is a photographer based in New York City.
