    Photographer Jason Eskenazi, a Fulbright Scholar and Guggenheim Fellow, discusses storytelling and visual literacy through the extraordinary photographs he took for his book, Wonderland (which won the prestigious Pictures of the Year International Book Award in 2008). Jason illustrates what he calls the visual grammar of photography, which includes composition, light, perspective, and context, and how he strives to work within that grammar to capture images with an emotional resonance. See more interviews with Foundry Workshop Instructors: http://photowings.org/foundry-photojournalism-workshop/ The fall of the Berlin Wall led Eskenazi out of Queens into the larger world. After trips to Germany and Romania for their first democratic elections he traveled to Russia in 1991, just before the August coup that marked the end of the USSR, and has returned many times since culminating in a photography book project called Wonderland: A Fairy Tale of the Soviet Monolith, winner of Best Photography Book 2008 by Pictures of the Year International. In 2004 he received a Fulbright Scholarship to return to Russia to make a series of large format color portraits called Title Nation with a Russian colleague which will be published Fall 2010. Jason Eskenazi has received numerous awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, 1999; The Dorothea Lange/Paul Taylor Prize, 1999, for his work in a Jewish Village in Azerbaijan; and The Alicia Patterson Foundation Grant, 1996. His work has appeared in many magazines including Time, Newsweek and The New York Times and Soros Foundation publications. http://www.jasoneskenazi.com/ PhotoWings' mission is to highlight and help facilitate the power of photography to influence the world.
