On Wednesday, September 9, 2017 Assistant Professor of Art at Wesleyan University, Sasha Rudensky, exhibited 25 of her meticulously observed and constructed images, which present an unsettling view into contemporary life in the New East. For more than a decade, she has repeatedly returned to Russia and the post-Soviet territories with her camera. Her photographs track a lost generation that has come of age during the Vladimir Putin era.
