The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will host a new photography exhibit by photojournalist Ben Krain from April 4 to May 6.

Krain’s exhibit, “Encounters,” will be on display in the Focus Gallery in the Windgate Center of Art and Design. The Focus Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, and 2-5 p.m. Sunday. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Krain, the university’s photographer and a former Arkansas Democrat-Gazette photographer, has 20 years of experience photographing events, sports, disasters, and wars. In some instances, he is the eyes of the world and goes to places where most people don’t want to go.

The more challenging are those of everyday life. The simple exploration of nothing. The content is not about news, it’s about the human spirit. These are the photographs in this exhibit.

A graduate of UA Little Rock, Krain has won numerous state and national awards. His work has been featured in publications like Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times.
