Grant awarded to return to Chernobyl
The ‘Stiftung Kulturwerk’ announces the names of the recipients for this year's grants. The foundation is one of the largest sources for funding in the fields of photography, illustration and design in Germany. It carries out the cultural mandate entrusted with the Verwertungsgesellschaft Bild-Kunst and awards project grants to photographers, illustrators, graphic artists, graphic designers and film makers. Amongst the projects that receive funding, is Gerd's proposal "Chernobyl - A Different Search for Traces". The grant enables Gerd to return to Chernobyl for two weeks this fall to add another segment to his long term project.
