Photographer Leo Rubinfien's Wounded Cities series — based on his having witnessed the 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist attack from a nearby apartment — looks at how people around the world have been psychologically affected by terrorist attacks. He has traveled the world — London, Nairobi, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Istanbul and Colombo — on the project. Born in Chicago in 1953 and a graduate of California Institute of the Arts and Yale University School of Art, he first attracted attention for his color photographs that investigated early globalization. His book Wounded Cities was published in 2008. Rubinfien will be the Fifth Annual Lightborne Photography Artist-in-Residence at Art Academy of Cincinnati through Nov. 21, and he will be present there at a reception for an exhibition of his work from 5-7 p.m. Friday.
