Work by award-winning Russian photojournalists Oksana Yushko and Arthur Bondar are featured in a program titled "From Sochi to Paducah" at the Paducah School of Art and Design. The school's dean Paul Aho joins Kate on Sounds Good to preview this collaboration with the Paducah Arts Alliance.

"It engages the viewer in something bigger, perhaps, and that's where the documentary aspect comes in, I suppose, it's something bigger than just the visual experiences looking at what we might think of as a traditional documentary photographic."

Yushko is a freelance photographer who has been working in professional journalism since 2006. Her work has been published in The New York Times, Mare Magazine (Germany), Guardian (UK), Russian Reporter, Esquire and Financial Times. Bondar has been working as a journalist since 2007. He exhibits his work worldwide and was recently named the "Best Photographer of the Year in Ukraine."
