benefit show tomorrow

For those of you in Wisconsin who missed my show last summer, you have another chance, tomorrow starting at 7 p.m. I'm supporting a benefit for FOCCUS (Friends of Chernobyl Centers, US), and my photos will be on display and on sale.

Thursday October 30, 2008
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Oakwood Village West, in the Village Inn
6205 Mineral Point Road - Madison, Wisconsin

There is a cover charge, but if you want to go as my guest, send me an email.

The evening will also include a short film about Chernobyl by Irene Zabytko and some Ukrainian musicians. More details about FOCCUS here.


earthquake in Kyrgyzstan

In light of yesterday's earthquake in Kyrgyzstan, I thought I'd post a photo from the region.

An earthquake in the Tien Shan mountains of southern Kyrgyzstan leveled the village of Nura and killed at least 70 residents on October 5, 2008. In this file photo from nearby, Kyrgyz horsemen herd cattle in a remote valley below 9,400-foot Kyzyl-Bel pass, along the road linking Naryn to the Chinese border at Torugart pass.

It's really a remarkably remote region. I'm not surprised they've had a hard time getting in and getting the injured out.
