BRATTLEBORO- Vermont Center for Photography is proud to present a solo exhibition by Ashfield, MA, photographer Frank Ward. The series, titled “The Drunken Bicycle: Travels in the Former Soviet Union,” is an intriguing documentary of a region of the world unknown to many. Ward has visited this region of the world numerous times and continues to capture captivating moments of everyday life there.

For Ward, 2008 was the first of five consecutive years traveling to Russia and Central Asia. This show includes color photographs from all five years with about half of the pictures from his most recent visit in 2012.

Ward and his wife Vivian Leskes have been, most recently, working in the five “Stans” of the former Soviet Union: Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. “The Drunken Bicycle: Travels in the Former Soviet Union” will be the most comprehensive showing of this work to date featuring a majority of pictures that have never previously been exhibited.

VCP is also hosting an artists’ talk and presentation with Ward and Leskes on Friday, November 30, at 5:30 pm.
