The Smell of Dust - Official Launch in São Paulo, Brazil

Added on by Annie Ling.

So excited to have my work in the official launch of the audiovisual performance THE SMELL OF DUST, taking place at the Gallery KUNSTHALLE in São Paulo, Brazil on April 16th, 2014 at 8pm.

The soundtrack of the projection composed exclusively for TSOD will be executed live by the Brazilian musician BASS N' INSANE. And of course a big shout out to all the talented photographers and musicians involved in the project, not least my friend Sue-Elie Andrade-Dé who is the mastermind behind all of this!

Check out my recent interview with TSOD on my latest series "Anonymous" and this great teaser:

Awhereness at CRS for Human Trafficking Awareness Day

This Saturday, January 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

The Center for Remembering & Sharing (a community center located in the East Village in NYC that presents healing, arts and cultural programs) in partnership with Think Act Change NYC will be hosting a free evening of film screenings and a panel discussion on what trafficking looks like today domestically and abroad. In conjunction with the event, a selection of images and stories from my project AWHERENESS on human trafficking in Romania and Moldova will be installed in the lobby for the month.

Please take this opportunity and direct your attention to SocialDocumentary.net which highlights work by photographers around the world shedding light on the tragedy of trafficking.

Stuart Klawans wrote this review in "The Nation" for the MoMA premiere of Sach's film:
Your Day is My Night is a strikingly handsome, meditative work: a mixture of reportage, dreams, memories and playacting which immerses you in an entire world that you might unknowingly pass on the corner of Hester Street, unable to guess what’s behind the fifth-floor windows."   

Should be a great event and crowd. Hope to see you there! 

Where I'm From / Immigrant Heritage Week

Added on by Annie Ling.

Tomorrow, I will take part in an exciting new project coinciding with Immigrant Heritage Week:

Where I'm From is a project of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism‘s radio program. “This is a natural extension of CUNY’s effort to develop new voices in public media. Part of doing that is developing new audiences and conscientiously serving and including them,” explains Tina Pamintuan, the J-School’s radio program director.

To kick off this pilot radio show focused on diaspora communities, I will be discussing and sharing a selection of my work in New York's Chinatown with esteemed host Jesse Hardman in front of a live audience at historic Webster Hall.

Where I'm From "will present a range of guests, essayists, and performers–including journalist and immigration advocate Jose Antonio Vargas, Kinshasa-born musician Isaac Katalay and his “Lifelong Project” band, and Annie Ling, whose photographic work of Manhattan Chinatown’s tenement housing was recently featured in the New York Times." 

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $5 here.

In the meantime, a teaser filmed this week by Nabil Rahman, in anticipation of the show:
