"Portraits of an Eternal People: A Jewish Family Album - Photographs by Zion Ozeri"
2003-07-02 until 2003-08-31
Skirball Cultural Center
Los Angeles, CA, USA United States of America

New York-based photographer Zion Ozeri, who was born in Israel to Yemenite parents, has traveled to Jewish communities around the world-Israel, Yemen, Russia, North Africa, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, India, and South America-to capture in black and white photographs the rich and distinct character of each community, along with the many beautiful similarities that have endured across time and place. On view will be more than 30 photographs illustrating the fluidity and diversity of Jewish life.

Zion Ozeri is one of the world's leading photojournalists. Raised in Israel during a period of mass immigration, he interacted with many diverse cultures. This unique background gave him a cross-cultural perspective that suffuses his work. He graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and Pratt Institute, both in New York City, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

His photographs have appeared in  The New York Times, Newsweek, The Jerusalem Report, Middle East Insight, and many other publications. His work also has been exhibited in the The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, The Diaspora Museum in Tel Aviv, the 92nd Street Y in New York, and many galleries across the United States. The Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York has six photographs of Mr. Ozeri's on permanent display.

Currently Mr. Ozeri is working on an exhibit of the Bukharan Jewish community of Uzbekistan, Central Asia, as well as documenting Jewish communities around the world.
