Award-Winning Photographers To Visit Paducah School of Art and Design

Award-winning Russian photographers will visit the Paducah School of Art and Design (PSAD) on March 26 as part of their month-long Paducah Arts Alliance (PAA) Artist-in-Residence Program.

Fresh from the Sochi Olympics, Oksana Yushko and Arthur Bondar from Moscow, Russia, will visit PSAD s 409 Broadway digital photo lab on Wednesday, March 26 at 12:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Yushko and Bondar will talk about their work and life experiences as photographers and follow up the presentation with a question and answer session.

Yushko is a freelance photographer with work published in The New York Times, Mare Magazine (Germany), Guardian (UK), Russian Reporter, Esquire and Financial Times to name a few. Bondars work is exhibited worldwide, and he was named "Best Photographer of the Year in Ukraine" in 2013.

The pair is planning to create a collaborative photo documentary during their residency in Paducah featuring the river and how it affects the lives of the people who live and work near the rivers.
