Marshall alum’s photos of Russian people to be on display at South Charleston library

Russian Photo by Eric DouglasEric Douglas, an author, writer and photographer who is a Marshall alumnus, will have an exhibition of his photography on display in the Marshall South Charleston campus library beginning Friday, Jan. 24.

Douglas said “Russia: Coming of Age” is a selection of images made in Russia between 1993 and 2008. In many cases, they are the same people or the same places, side by side. In others, the images represent similar things or the evolution from the post-Soviet period to the modern era. He will discuss his work in person at a presentation at the Marshall South Charleston library at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7.

The exhibition is scheduled to run until Tuesday, April 7.
