Afghanistan: Challenges in Documenting Culture in Places of Conflincts 

Saturday, April 12th, 6:30 - 8:00pm

San Francisco, CA 94103 

Since 1999, international photojournalist, Beb C. Reynol has worked on several projects in Afghanistan and Pakistan, crossing borders on foot to meet with the ethnic Pashtun, the largest tribal group in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Internal warfare, past and present, has deepened ethnic and religious differences within the Afghan culture.

Emory University Event: Jon Kolkin

If you and/or those you know are near Atlanta, Georgia, between March 24th and April 27th, you can join Jon Kolkin for two events at Emory University.

The first is part of Emory's ongoing series, Creativity Conversations.  These dialogues are intended to bring creative thinkers into a conversation with great Emory scholars.  I am honored to be sitting down with Tara Doyle, director of the Tibetan Studies Program, for a conversation centered around the creative process of seeking wisdom and balance within our lives, using my artwork as a backdrop for the discussion.  Tara is an astute scholar who has had the added benefit of working closely with His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, also a member of the Emory faculty.  Our conversation will take place on Tuesday, March 25, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm at the Michael Carlos Museum.  

You are also invited to a solo exhibition of Seeking Wisdom, March 24 - April 27, in the Chace Gallery at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts.
