Next month, Gallery4Culture features a 22-photograph exhibition by Seattle-based artist Alexander Mouton titled Some Time Later…I’m Here: Photographs From Poland and Ukraine. The show presents select images from Mouton’s ongoing documentary project in Eastern Europe, which began directly following the fall of the Berlin Wall, when Mouton lived in Berlin, Germany for four years. His photographs explore the milieu in which those remaining Ukrainian and Polish citizens—who survived the Nazi invasion, Stalin’s brutal rule, and postwar Soviet totalitarianism—live out the remaining years of their lives. Some Time Later…I’m Here consists of color photographs from 2013, taken in Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, and Wroclaw, Poland and in Lviv, Ukraine.

Mouton’s study in Eastern Europe was supported, in part, by a Fulbright Fellowship, during which he apprenticed to a master bookbinder and participated in international arts projects. Recently, Mouton’s photographic practice has expanded to explore new technology, showing his interactive and time-based art in national and international venues. He is currently an Associate Professor of Digital Art and Design at Seattle University.
