SDN’s 10th Anniversary Exhibition

Very proud to be a part of the social documentary landscape, and to have participated in SDN’s 10th Anniversary Exhibition and Celebration. A wonderful turn out despite the inclement weather, and an honor to meet artists who are invested in changing the social landscape. A powerful exhibit was held at the Bronx Documentary Center in NYC, covering a decade of truth storytelling punctuated by the musical performance of James Lovell and the Afrigarifuna Music Ambassadors. Their performance cannot be overstated. He is an educator, activist, and co-founded a performing arts company which promotes indigenous Garifuna culture from Central America. He performs at the UN, and the Smithsonian. Currently being exhibited at the center, is “War and Peace in Liberia” Some never before seen images, from brave journalists Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, whose work was instrument in bringing to light, the humanitarian crisis in Liberia. Their documentation of events, helped bring international attention and momentum in helping to create the UN peacekeeping mission that helped bring the war to a close. Not to be missed.

About Kuo Photo

Linda Kuo is a documentary photographer whose work centers on social-environmental issues, with a focus on the impact humankind has upon nature and the animal kingdom. It is the animal that solicits Kuo's projects, and most strongly connects her to the underlying sensibilities of her work. Linda feels that animals and nature are endowed with resilient mechanisms for survival, and posses the ability to continually adapt and yield to changing circumstances. However, their innate and intelligent systems of proficiency, are continually being stressed under the actions of humankind. With simplicity and openness, she hopes to create imagery that provokes consideration towards the preservation and responsible stewardship of our environment, and the sentient beings that inhabit our world. Linda has been nominated for PDN's 30: Emerging Photographers to Watch, and her work has been featured in The New York Times, The London Sunday Times Magazine, Slate, and Photograph. Linda's photography has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, The Center for Fine Art Photography, and the Biennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography in Barcelona among other national and international exhibitions. In addition to photography, Linda is a certified yoga instructor specializing in rehabilitation and injury, passionate about the violin, and interested in Asian culture. Linda lives in New York with her family and continues to work on her long term projects.
