When: Wed., April 24, 3:30 p.m. 2013

;Aesthetics and politics have everything to do with each other. Or at least they should. UNC art professor elin o'Hara slavick exemplifies that stance. She signs and discusses her new book After Hiroshima (Daylight Books) that collects her photographs from the city upon which the U.S. dropped a nuclear bomb in 1945. Much of what she records is invisible—loss, radiation—and slavick has an uncannily clear eye. Both artistic and documentary, her photographs have the directness of language, even presenting a kind of argument. After Hiroshima adds up to a lesson in how to apprehend one's environment through ethical lenses. Slavick also appears a few hours later at Flyleaf Books at 7:30 p.m., and she opens an exhibit of photographs from the book on Friday at Daylight Project Space in Hillsborough. —Chris Vitiello
