    Arts Habitat will present photojournalist Ian Martin, at Arts in Progress (AIP) on Tuesday, March 25, for the presentation: "Black and White Lens: The Documentary Photojournalism of Ian Martin". AIP takes place the fourth Tuesday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The event takes place at the auditorium of the Museum of Monterey, 5 Customs House Plaza, Monterey. AIP is open to the public, the admission fee is $5 and complimentary refreshments are served. The first and last half hours are devoted to socializing and community building. The program runs about an hour, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

    Ian Martin has completed numerous documentary photography projects and most often works in black and white. He received a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2008 for his project "Hidden Minority: South Africa's White Poor." He is a former staff photographer for The Virginian-Pilot, Virginia's largest newspaper, and has photographed for numerous publications including Newsweek and The New Yorker. "Apartheid subjugated millions while guaranteeing jobs for a comparative handful of poor whites, a minority of a minority. Some are unable to find sympathy for a group of people who benefited from that oppression. But many of my subjects were children when apartheid ended. They are not to blame for its injustice. By photographing this unexpected subject, I hope to tear away the easy stereotypes of a deep and intractable plight. I want to surprise the viewers of my work into seeing all poverty, regardless of race, with new and less jaded eyes."
