The Stones Have Memories: an photographic exploration of Berlin’s Cold War Landmarks by Kelly Gorham

ASMSU Campus Entertainment presents The Stones Have Memories, a collection of photographs by Kelly Gorham. The exhibit will be showing in the Exit Gallery February 1 – 12. There will be a free public artist reception Thursday, February 4th, 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

After the devastation of World War II, Berlin became a city on the frontline of a struggle between two great superpowers. This tale of political unrest, dominance and oppression played out over the next four decades between the powers of East and West in the city of Berlin. In 2008, following nearly two years of research, Kelly Gorham set out to explore the neighborhoods of former East Berlin to create images for “The Stones Have Memories”. With guidance from historians at home and in Berlin, and from friends who lived on both sides of the Wall, Gorham traced back history and photographed a dramatic story.

In a professional career that spans nearly twenty years, Kelly Gorham has worked for clients such as AAA, Bentley Motors, Holiday Inn and Harley Davidson, and his images have been featured in the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Forbes Life, Skiing Magazine, Robb Report and GEO. Gorham has earned many honors, and his work has been exhibited at several galleries. “The Stones Have Memories” began its tour November 9, 2009 at the 7444 Gallery in Saranac Lake, NY.

The Exit Gallery is located in Strand Union Building room 212, Montana State University, Bozeman. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. For more information contact ASMSU Arts and Exhibits at 406.994.1828 or asmsuexhibits@montana.edu.
