Who: Jeffrey Gusky, M.D., FACEP, Doctor, Artist and Explorer
What: Selected pieces of The Hidden World of WWI collection will be on display in the com-mercial lobby of One Arts Plaza as part of their rotation of art exhibits within the building. This is the first exhibition of The Hidden World of WWI.
When: July 9-July 25, 2014
Where: One Arts Plaza, Commercial Lobby, 1722 Routh Street, Dallas, TX
Why: This week, Gusky announced the debut of a series of almost 2,000 striking images documenting The Hidden World of WWI. The groundbreaking photographs reveal an all but forgotten soldier’s world, underground cities beneath the trenches located in ancient rock quarries along the Western Front in France. Time capsules of a century ago that once housed tens of thousands of soldiers, they are bristling with artifacts, sculptures and emo-tionally charged graffiti that the soldiers left behind. Landowners determined to preserve the past have kept these sites secret for decades.
The images are on display this year — 2014, which marks the centennial of the beginning of World War I.
About the Artist
Jeffrey Gusky, M.D., FACEP, lives two lives — one as a rural emergency physician and the other as a fine-art photographer and explorer.
Gusky’s first year of medical school at the University of Washington was spent in Alaska as part of the WAMI Program, created to inspire students to become country doctors. Gusky graduated high in his class and was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, the National Honor Medical Society. He combined his love of flying and rural medicine and used his plane to reach remote hospital emergency rooms on short notice throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Since 1991, he has taught trauma skills to other physicians as an instructor in the Advanced Trauma Life Support program and is a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physi-cians.
Two books of black-and-white photography, multiple national exhibitions including the pairing of his work with the Spanish master Francisco de Goya and the legendary early 20th Century photographer Roman Vishniac, inclusion in a Broadway play and the honor of a Gusky travel-ing exhibition being ranked by Artnet Magazine on its 2009 list of the top 20 museum shows in America mark Gusky’s fine-art career. He explores the world photographing pieces of the past that can help us discover who we are and which inspire us to ask questions about the vulnerabilities of modern life that we have forgotten how to ask.
