2000-01-14 until 2000-04-30
Brooklyn Museum of Art
Brooklyn, NY, USA United States of America

This exhibition will include 70 photographs by David Goberman taken over the course of seventy-five years. Through these photographs, the exhibition documents and explores the vanishing art of stone carvers dating back to the twelfth century, and highlights themes of folk art and spiritual belief. The photos also provide a timeless record of Jewish tradition in Russia over the course of more than three centuries. Following their photographic documentation, many of the tombstones were later destroyed and used as construction materials. The exhibition will include a map w ith lists of villages and names of the deceased for use by scholars and descendants of the deceased.
