Postcard From Baku: Rena Effendi’s Oil Village

Rena Effendi contrasts her father’s images with her own of environmental decay in her hometown of Baku, Azerbaijan, which Forbes named the most polluted city in the world in 2008.

A selection of this work is part of the current Moving Walls exhibition at the Open Society Foundation, along with six other artists, which opens tonight and runs through October 31, 2012. Click through for a slide show of Effendi’s work: http://nyr.kr/uIswft
