Alain Keler, 1997 W. Eugene Smith Fund Grant Recipient

French photographer Alain Keler used his 1997 Grant to carry on a long-term project documenting cultural and religious minorities in the former European Communist bloc who continue to face persecution by the rising forces of nationalism. According to Keler, his objective is “to show the way of life, the culture and the problems with which minorities are confronted in order to preserve their identities.”
