Foto:RE, in association with Pat the Dog and the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, is proud to bring renowned photographer Dimitry Chatrov, his vast experience and breathtaking photography collection to K-W. No stranger to exotic locales, Chatrov has photographed people and landscapes throughout the world, leading expeditions in Ecuador, India and to the vanishing cultures of remote Upper Mustang in Nepal’s Himalayas. An experienced climber, he has reached the summits of Kilimanjaro, Mont Blanc, Mount Ararat, and Mount Elbrus — and has the photographs to prove it.
Although Chatrov is Canadian, he spends much of his time abroad. This is a unique opportunity to hear Chatrov recount his adventures and share his photographic expertise. Making full use of the Christie Digital projection system at the Hub, Chatrov’s already dramatic photographs will become larger than life.
