On Saturday, Jan. 10, from 5 to 9 p.m., Fovea will unveil the first of their semiannual exhibits at Hudson Beach Glass with a powerful exhibition entitled Braving Ebola by international photojournalist Daniel Berehulak.

The exhibit features striking black-and-white photographic portraits and interviews of workers and survivors of the epidemic in a clinic in rural Liberia, photographed on assignment last fall for The New York Times.

Berehulak is an award-winning photojournalist who spent more than five weeks covering the Ebola crisis in Liberia. He was required to seal off every part of his body before venturing into the high-risk areas, to ensure he was not exposed to the virus.

The exhibit will be on view daily through Feb. 8 at the Hudson Beach Glass gallery located on 162 Main St. in Beacon, open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, visit FoveaExhibitions.org.
