Art Professor Alexander Mouton exhibits his work "SomeTime Later... I?m Here: Photographs From Poland & Ukraine," at Gallery4Culture. The solo exhibit presents select images from Mouton?s ongoing documentary project in Eastern Europe.

Mouton started this project while living in Berlin, Germany. His photographs explore the milieu in which those remaining Ukrainian and Polish citizens, who lived through and survived the Nazi invasion, Stalin's brutal rule, and postwar Soviet totalitarianism, "Some Time Later... I'm Here" consists of twenty-two color photographs from 2013, taken in Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, and Wroclaw, Poland, and in Lviv, Ukraine.

Mouton, who received his MFA in photography from Indiana University has worked in film, literature, photography, book arts, and digital media. He joined the College of Arts and Sciences in 2009 and teaches digital art and design.

As a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship, Mouton apprenticed to a master bookbinder and participated in international arts projects. His limited-edition photo book enterprise, Unseen Press, has works in the permanent collections of MoMA, NYC; the Getty Research Institute, LA; and the Kunst Bibliothek, Berlin. His recent interactive and time-based art has been shown in national and international venues. He received funding support for this project from the university's Summer Faculty Fellowship program.

"Some Time Later... I'm Here: Photographs From Poland & Ukraine" runs from November 5 - December 3, 2015, at Gallery4Culture in Seattle.

The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers more than 80 undergraduate degrees, 3 graduate certificates, and 7 master's degrees, including an MFA in Arts Leadership.
