THE GREAT ESCAPE
With the help of Sudanese supermodel Nykhor Paul, New York–based photographer Mike Mellia hopes his latest exhibition, “Our Side of the Story: South Sudan,” brings attention to the current conflict in that region. This one-day show displays 14 stunning portraits of Sudanese immigrants who now live in the U.S., many of whom work in the arts, including Paul, who has worked for Louis Vuitton and Calvin Klein, actor Ger Duany (The Good Lie, I Heart Huckabees), and artist and writer Amou Ajang. Each portrait comes with a narrative of the circumstances of their emigration.
