Powerful Photo Exhibition Showing Diverse People, “Humans of Tel Aviv” Debuts At Lighthouse ArtCenter December 2 -6

A powerful photo exhibition, “Humans of Tel Aviv” debuts at the Lighthouse ArtCenter from Monday, December 2- Friday, December 6.  It explores the rich and remarkably diverse lives of those who call Tel Aviv their home.  Artist/photographer Erez Kaganovitz features enlarged photos highlighting the vibrant cultures evident throughout Tel Aviv – Israel’s second most populous city – a contrast to what many envision of Israeli culture. The artist was inspired to photograph the melting pot that is Tel Aviv after experiencing the popular “Humans of New York” photographic project.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks. You will be surprised!

“Humans   of   Tel   Aviv”

Photographic   Exhibition

Featuring the diverse people of Tel Aviv, Israel

 

 

 

 

Meet Dina, born in Addis Ababa and moved to Israel as a baby.  “Personally, I’ve never encountered racism but I know a lot of Ethiopians who have. In the bottom line it all comes down to education.  It’s about time people will understand that there is no difference between white & black, they’re only different shades, all on the same color spectrum”

 

 

To celebrate Israel and create a greater awareness of the diversity of backgrounds, cultures and perspectives of its people, Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County invites the community to explore the international Humans of Tel Aviv photo exhibition. Presented by Federation’s Israel Program Center, the display showcases the multiculturalism that defines the people of Tel Aviv, Israel, as photographed throughout the city. 

 

Created by Israeli artist/photographer Erez Kaganovitz, the exhibition features enlarged photos highlighting the vibrant cultures evident throughout Tel Aviv – Israel’s second most populous city – a contrast to what many envision of Israeli culture. The artist was inspired to photograph the melting pot that is Tel Aviv after experiencing the popular “Humans of New York” photographic project.

Erez says, “I believe that knowledge is a great power for change. The first step  towards multiculturalism and respect among different Humans is to get a better understanding of the unique culture and values that every facet of Humanity holds…In “Humans of Tel Aviv”, one can find all the ingredients of the melting pot: Ultra-Orthodox Jews, Muslims and Christians alongside the LGBT community refugees from Africa who fled to Israel right next to posh residents of Rothschild Boulevard”.

 

“We are proud that Federation’s Israel Program Center can introduce a unconventional view of Israel to our community in a way that has never been experienced before, broadening horizons, and providing an appreciation for the connection we all share – our common humanity,” shared Peter Eckstein, Director, Israel Programming and Education Innovation. 

 

 

In Spring 2019, students at two area public schools had the opportunity to view the exhibit and meet with the photographer. The entire project is part of Federation’s new Israel Program Center, aimed at empowering community members to connect to and engage with Israel through relevant and meaningful experiences that convey the beauty and complexity of Israel’s people and culture.
