Gerd Ludwig Photography



This year Gerd Ludwig returns to Zingst, Germany, for the Horizonte photo festival. A considerable segment of this year's festival is Gerd Ludwig's exhibition, "The Long Shadow of Chernobyl/Der lange Schatten von Tschernobyl". Spanning nearly two decades of his work covering the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the photographs explore the human and environmental impact of the disaster 25 years later. Jürgen Trittin, former Federal Minister for the Environment in Germany, and now Chairman of the German Green Party, will be the patron for Gerd’s show. This exhibition of 50 prints takes place at the Marinekomplex in Zingst, Germany, from May 28 through June 16, 2011. As part of the Zingst Horizonte festival, Gerd Ludwig also teaches a 4-day workshop from May 30 through June 2,"Mensch und Landschaft" (People and Landscapes) and will participate in presentations and panel discussions.
