“Humans   of   Tel   Aviv”

Photographic   Exhibition

Monday, December 2 – Friday, December 6, 2019

 

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. 

 

Artist/photographer Erez Kaganovitz

 

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.

Artists were invited to submit all genres, subjects, capture types and photographic processes both historic and modern for this juried photography exhibition. All types of photography mediums including iPhone, Cellphone, Polaroid, and digital prints on any medium were included. Photographs provide many things; proof that something happened, the ability to capture a moment or memories, or as a means of communication. Artists were asked to submit work that was innovative, interesting, artistic or awe-inspiring, and their response has resulted in a powerful show.

 

 

Edward H. Munoz, the gallery’s own resident art photographer, is the Judge for this exhibition. As a manufacturing executive, Ed traveled the world and visited stunning locales, met interesting people and saw amazing wonders, all the while amassing a considerable portfolio of photos as part hobby and part stress reliever.After retiring in 2002, editing, matting and framing some of these photos became his retirement project. Over the last 10 years he has endeavored to expand his photography skills under the guidance of such pros as Ken Geiger, a Pulitzer prize winner and National Geographic photographer; E. David Luria of Washington DC photo safari fame, and David Durbak, a well-known architectural photographer here in Florida. Since then he has won numerous awards most recently in the Grassy Waters Photo Contest.
Ed will be presenting First Place, Second Place, and Honorable Mention awards at the Opening Reception on September 13, 2019, 5 – 8 PM. Mark your calendar and make sure to be there.

The jpgs you send are important, and Dennis will help you make your artwork look its best.

Photography by Christopher Fay

 

 

Photographer Christopher Fay believes recognizing beautiful ART around you constantly is a gift and skill that comes from viewing the world through the Artist’s Eye. The trick is to develop the patience and imagination to recognize it.  From there, each image calls for its own composition.  With the onset of digital photography and many digital photography advancements, new worlds have opened a new age of creating high-quality photographic artwork.  By using various techniques and tools to enhance regular photographs, spectacular results can be achieved in the finished image.

 

Photography by Hope Kahn

 

 

Photographer Hope Kahn uses many different photographic means to capture an image; such as digital cameras, plastic cameras and pinhole cameras. She then applies, a variety of finishing techniques.  Some of the techniques used are historical processes such as Photo Gravure, Cyanotype as well as the use of paper negatives. The common thread in her art is the blending of the realistic into the interpretative – producing a poetic quality to her photographs. Her clients have often called her work “mysterious and otherworldly.”  

 

 

 

Photography by Shalini Nopany

 

 

Photographer Shalini Nopany is known for both black and white and color images of people and places. Her photographs, which radiate with a woman’s sensibility, freeze a moment in time that captures emotions and actions. Her themes have included motion, emotion, and people’s activities in different settings.

 


Curator Bruce Helander

 

 

Curator Bruce Helander is an art critic, arts writer, curator and artist whose specialty is collage and assemblage. He has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts. He is one of two 2014 inductees to the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, Florida’s most prestigious arts and culture honor (the other is musician Tom Petty).

Dede Pickering:

 

 

My photographs are meant to be a bridge between cultures and to express the universal human spirit.I am driven by my curiosity, sense of adventure and desire to explore the world. I was a traveller long before I was a photographer. Discovering the world has been a life long personal journey of soul-searching and self-discovery. Recording what I see has given me an increased empathy and connection to the world.Camera in hand I’ve traveled to six continents and more than one hundred countries, never hesitating to return to my favorite destinations. My passion remains The Far East and in particular the Buddhist areas that border the great Himalayan Mountain range.

 

 

ccepcikeringindia

“India” by Dede Pickering

 

My interest in photography grew out of my wish to record what I witnessed during my journeys to different cultures. That wish motivated me to document people and their everyday life, especially in marginalized communities. Stepping into the shoes of others was something I could only imagine. My camera changed that and serves as a bridge, not a barrier, to my subject allowing me to record hope and despair as well as the beauty and the roughness of the world.I enjoy the intimacy of photographing people. Photography helps me search deeply and intensely for expression and connection with my subject even in the darkest of circumstances. Looking into the eyes of others has served as my own reflection and helped me realize that we all share one world with similar dreams and aspirations.

“Cuba” by Dede Pickering

 

 

 

Interacting with strangers is one of the greatest gifts photography has given me. Travelling and welcoming the unknown has changed my life for the better. Based on what I have witnessed during my travels I know that every person can make a difference for good in this world. Even the biggest dreams and most ambitious goals begin with the actions of individuals, often beyond our own borders.For me, being involved in non-government charity work on behalf of women and children worldwide added purpose and meaning to my life and photography. I’ve witnessed the work of CARE and Women’s World Banking in the developing world and know the power and impact they can make on a community. When I combined my love of travel and photography to benefit humanity, everything changed and my life came together.

“Mynamar” by Dede Pickering

 

 

 

My camera and my curiosity have led me off the beaten path. The journey is often more important than the image to me. My lens has allowed me to look inside the lives of others and blur the differences. The person I am today reflects the places I have traveled and the people I have met along the way.

 

 

 

Seth Resnick:

 

 

cceresnickrotura

Rotor” by Seth Resnick

 

My images are a journey into the personal space of my subject literally traversing and surveying into that space. I like graphic boundaries to place a limit on the space and through the use of layers and both straight and curved lines travel through that space deeply exploring the energy I feel from within that space. I want my viewers to see my photographs as an opportunity to consider the larger, unseen realities that contribute to the energy and uniqueness of my subjects.

 

 

cceresnickdeadvalley

“Dead Valley” by Seth Resnick

 

 

 

Ideally photographing isn’t just a record of a physical presence but a documentation of the encounter that exists between the energy I experience in my subject. In formal terms, my work is an exploration of a packed frame typically filled with layers in the form of light, texture and color. I am interested in both the tension and solitude that exists within the frame.

 

cceresnickcapetuxen

“Cape Tuxen” by Seth Resnick

 

I am attracted primary colors and most importantly formal boundaries are very important in my images. When I am shooting I feel I am exploring fantasy of nature. The images that work the best for me explore feelings of sensuality and create illusions but at the same time emphasize our fragile environment and instill a sense of responsibility to preserve it from further destruction.
