I’m excited to announce my selection as an Immigration Reporting Fellow by the French American Foundation. For my project I’ll be traveling to Sweden on Sunday for a month to look at the lives of second generation immigrants of Turkish decent and in September I will be based in Istanbul for two months interviewing and photographing those who have migrated to Turkey

Several of my images are featured in ETHNOSCAPES at 461 West 126th street in New York and will be on view only until December 2nd, 2012. ETHNOSCAPES is an International group show investigating issues of (social) de-territorialization, migration, and hybrid identities. While I won’t be able to attend I hope that you can make it to the show!
Projected images from Newsfeed: Ghost in the Shell at Long Island University in Brooklyn

My work is featured in not one but two group shows in New York this season! The second show is currently on display at Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus in their lovely glass walled Humanities Gallery located at 1 University Plaza at the corner of Dekalb & Flatbush Avenues in downtown Brooklyn. “Newsfeed: Ghost In the Shell”, which is on view through Jan. 4, 2013, explores the theme of interconnectivity through projected images and sound and is organized by MOCADA. In addition to the five projected images I have on display, which were taken in places as diverse as Rwanda, Spain and Kosovo, this exhibition features my first sound based work which is comprised of field audio collected in Pentecostal churches here in Spain. If you’re in the New York area please visit the show.

If you didn’t have a chance to see my current exhibition, The Europeans: A Work in Progress there’s still time. I know many of you live too far away to visit so here are two write ups about the show and my work that appeared in La Vanguardia and TimeOut Barcelona. If you don’t read Catalan click on this link for the translation of the TimeOut story and this link for La Vanguardia.

There’s some good news this week: I’ve been awarded a Knight-Luce Fellowship in Global Reporting from USC Annenberg!

Damaso Reyes will investigate the growth of European Pentecostalism led by immigrants from former European colonies. Reporting from Spain, England and Ukraine, Reyes will examine how Charismatic faiths are growing while traditional European Christian religious observance continues to decline. Reyes is a photographer and writer whose work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Der Spiegel, and The Christian Science Monitor.”

I just wanted to direct your attention to an interview with yours truly featured in the latest issue of Europe & Me Magazine.
