Aurora Photos photographer Guillermo Cervera will have his first solo exhibit at Anastasia Photo in New York City from October 24, 2014 – January 4, 2015.
Work on display will include selections from 20 years of documenting armed conflict and social issues globally as well as work featured in HBO’s upcoming film, THE LAST PATROL.
HBO’s THE LAST PATROL, debuting November 10th, features Cervera and two combat veterans. They join award-winning journalist and filmmaker Sebastian Junger as they embark on a walk along the train tracks from Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia, and then to Pittsburgh. Anastasio Photos says of the film: “Making their way through ghettos, suburbs, farms and woods in multiple trips spanning a year, they re-create the incredible closeness and interdependence of soldiers in combat while discovering the pulse of America.”

The October 2014 issue of National Geographic features a story about western drought with photography by Aurora photographer Peter Essick. The story, called “When the Snows Fail” is a look into the current state of the American West and their persistent droughts.
According to National Geographic, “The story of the Central Valley of California is the story of much of the American West, and of other inhabited deserts around the world. We have altered the driest parts of California, Nevada, and Arizona to fulfill our ambitions, and for years we have been able to ignore their natural limits. Now a growing population and a changing climate are exposing those limits as never before.”
