MASLOV SASHA

Sasha Maslov
Veterans: Faces of World War II

June 9 – 30, 2017
Artist reception and book signing: Friday, June 9, 6:00 to 8:00 PM

Art at the Institute is proud to present Veterans: Faces of World War II, an exhibition of portraits by New York-based photographer Sasha Maslov. It coincides with the release of Mr. Maslov’s book, Veterans: Faces of World War II, published by Princeton Architectural Press (New York: 2017). Curated by Walter Hoydysh, PhD, director of Art at the Institute, the exhibition is Sasha Maslov’s first with the UIA.

Veterans is a series of portraits of people who actively participated in the Second World War. Maslov
began the four-year project travelling different continents, photographing and interviewing individuals who lived through the war. His sitters include not only soldiers but medics, engineers, partisans, members of various resistance movements, prisoners of war, Holocaust survivors, and civilians caught in the turmoil.

This documentary project looks behind the emotional drapery of each person photographed. Seventy
years after the war that claimed millions of lives, the photographer studies and compares the lives of those
who survived and are still living today. Each subject has his or her own personal story to tell of the war,
how it affected them, and the years thereafter. The resulting photographs, interviews and published book
assemble a recorded mosaic of people who in one moment of history were all engaged in this incredible
tragedy, and in the other, living their separate lives in different corners of the world.

Sasha Maslov is a Ukrainian-born portrait photographer who lives and works in New York. His works
have been exhibited in photo galleries and art spaces throughout Europe and the United States, and his
editorial assignments appear regularly in major global magazines and newspapers. Mr. Maslov is
represented by Artists by Timothy Priano creative agency. For more information about Sasha Maslov,

At a parallel event, Mr. Maslov gave a book talk and signing of Veterans: Faces of World War II at the 92 Street Y on May 17.
