Anastasia Photo Gallery in New York exhibits "Signs of Your Identity" between November 12, 2016 through January 25, 2017. The work by photographer Daniella Zalcman showcases multiple exposure portraits of survivors of cultural genocide in Canada and the United State's indigenous communities.

Zalcman's subjects reflect on the traumas of their residential school experiences. In Canada, the last of these schools closed in 1996. In the United States, 59 remain open today.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Zalcman recently published a book of her work with the FotoEvidence Book Award.
