    Revolutions: Photographs of the Arab Spring by late photojournalist Remi Ochlik

    The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and the Consulate General of France in Boston present a stirring exhibit by French photojournalist Remi Ochlik, who was killed in the February 2012 bombardment of Homs during the Syrian uprising along with American war journalist Marie Colvin.
    The exhibit, titled “Revolutions,” will feature 56 images by Ochlik, who, until his death at age 28, covered pivotal events around the world including riots in Haiti in 2004 surrounding the fall of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, war in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2008, the cholera epidemic and presidential elections in Haiti in 2010, and the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions and the uprising and war in Libya in 2011.
    The exhibit is free and open to the public, and a panel discussion will be held on January 30, 2013 at 7pm in Lesley’s Washburn Auditorium, 10 Phillips Place, Cambridge featuring: Moderator Stephen Mayes; Karim Ben Khelifa, a Belgian-Tunisian photojournalist and co-founder and CEO of Emphas.is, a website designed to promote crowd-funded visual journalism; Ludovic Blecher, executive director and editor-in-chief of French newspaper Libération; and Judith Matloff, a professor at Columbia University's graduate journalism program.

    The panel will address the important role of photojournalism in the context of the Arab Spring.
