September 16 - October 18, 2016
Preview Reception with the Artist
Thursday, September 15, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
BEN BARBER assembled this photographic exhibit from thousands of photos taken over 35 years during his time as a correspondent and photojournalist. The show features 35 enchanting and informative photos from 20 countries — from Morocco to India — showing people at work, tending their crops and animals, raising their children and living out their values and traditions much as we do.
About the photograph: Moroccan Jewish School
This is a girl in a Jewish school in Rabat the capital of Morocco, around 1980. The photo behind her on the wall is then King Hassan II who — along with his father and now his son protected Morocco’s Jews — first from Nazis in World War II and later from anti-Israel riots.
