Ethiopian Photographer Presents Fresh View of the Cuyahoga at the Cleveland Print Room

Fri 6/21 @ 5-9PM

Ethiopian photographer Michael Tsegaye is an internationally published photojournalist who has worked for major organizations such as Bloomberg and Reuters. But he also does his personal fine-art work much of which focuses on social documentary.

His exhibition at the Cleveland Print Room, called Crooked River, opens this week as part of the Xtinguish celebration of the last Cuyahoga River 50 years ago. Tsegaye has been in Cleveland as CPR’s Creative Fusion international artist-in-residence creating the project. He’s transforming the environment of the CPR gallery with giant prints, both aerial shots and those taken from the ground, looking at the river from different viewpoints.

Come see at the opening reception Fri 6.21 @ 5-9pm. It’s free and open to all. The show will be on view through August 3.

    Environmental degradation has direct effect on human survival, recognizing the problem is the first step that takes to environmental healing, however many nations and nationalities are blind and silent to do something ,we must work together to reconstruct our environment. Awareness creation through unique method of communication like micheal tsegaye photograph wil give clear understanding of the situation .it help us internalize the problem and as a steping stones for moblizeing people towards environmental healing.
