BRECKE ON DARFUR + MARTINEZ ON IRAQ
Globe-trotting photog Mark Brecke walks us through his work-in-progress, "They Turned Our Desert into Fire", framed by a pair of ’06 journeys: First, to Western Sudan to retrieve images of the human calamity there; on the second sojourn, Brecke brought his prints for an installation to the US Capitol by way of a cross-country Amtrak train, sharing the depicted stories with fellow passengers. During the same period, fellow freelancer David Martinez was circling through the war-scarred streets and countryside of Iraq on his own journalistic quest. In the show’s second half, Martinez introduces and answers questions about the personal documentary that resulted from his gutsy junkets, "500 Miles to Babylon: A Film about Iraq under US Occupation". A portion of the proceeds goes to Doctors Without Borders. $7.
