Join us for the opening of artist Gerry Yaum's Families of the Dump/People who Live under the Freeway, on Friday, Oct. 28 at 5 p.m. in the galleries of the UNB Art Centre.

Gerry Yaum is a self-taught photographer with over 40 years of experience. He has been taking pictures of the people in the Mae Sot Garbage Dump since 2013 and the Klong Toey Slum in Bangkok since 2012. For him, the photographs are more than artworks, they help to educate, raise awareness, and interpret forgotten lives.

The exhibition runs until Dec. 15.
