Congratulations to Chasi Annexy, our scholarship recipient for 2011! Chasi is a professional photographer based in New York. She helped to document music, dance and other traditions in the Cossack khutor (village) of Kakichev in July of 2011.
Two of Chasi’s photographs from Kakichev were chosen for inclusion in “Feast Your Eyes”, a photo exhibit sponsored by the New York Photo Festival. Chasi’s pictures, “Marina Picking Apples” and “Portrait of Baba Zina in Her Kitchen,” fit right in with the exhibition theme of food, meals, and cooking.
