The Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies Presents Photographer Zion Ozeri
World-renowned Israeli-American photographer Zion Ozeri, whose repertoire focuses on exploring the Jewish experience, will speak at two Convocation events.
Ozeri will discuss "Jewish Identity, Jewish Diversity Through Photography" Monday, Nov. 5, at 4 p.m. at PLC 125 and "The Language of Photography, Spring Board to a Social Action" Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 12 p.m. at the Fireside Room.
From Bukhara to Djerba, Sana' to Brooklyn, Mumbai to St. Petersburg, Ozeri's photographs speak of the cross-cultural dimension of contemporary Jewish life. These photographs capture an instant in time, reflecting ritual, spirituality, and slices of Jewish life. Ozeri looks at communities scattered around the world, trying to find in them a sense of home, familiar customs, and shared experiences.
