For photographer Misha Friedman, analytical photography is not about capturing events and facts, or even reactions to these events and facts. Rather it is about revealing causes, asking complex and difficult questions and answering them with photographs. Born in Moldova under soviet rule, Misha Friedman currently lives in New York. He has a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s in Russian and Post-Soviet studies. His photography has won numerous awards, including a grant from the Institute for Modern Russia to sponsor the series Photo 51: Is Corruption in Russia’s DNA?” which will be on exhibit at the Work Gallery (306 S. State) in May and June.

Co-presented by the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies, and the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies.
