  • From the exhibit “Braving Ebola,” a portrait of Kenyan emergency nurse Pares Momanyi, 30, at the Bong County Ebola Treatment Unit in Suakoko, Liberia, on October 12, 2014.

Photographer Daniel Berehulak spent five weeks in Monrovia, Liberia, in the fall of 2014 documenting the Ebola outbreak that has claimed thousand of lives in West Africa. His stark black-and-white portraits show the faces of Ebola workers and survivors. Sweat drips down from grave diggers and doctors alike. Some look defeated, some determined; they all appear to be looking beyond or through the camera—at the future or the past, it's hard to say. There's a lingering spiteful bitterness in those few subjects who smiled for the camera, an existential joke they're either laughing with or at. Berehulak's exhibit "Braving Ebola," presented by Fovea, is on display through February 8 at Hudson Beach Glass in Beacon. Foveaeditions.org.

    Here in the Hudson Valley and Catskills there’s a coziness about the Woodstock '69 50th anniversary. While tie dye and tolerance have never really gone out of style around here, those who’d like to mark the anniversary in some way have a number of local goings-on to slake their thirst for nostalgia, peace, love and music. Hey now, we still know how to brew that stuff from scratch.
