Faces of Jerusalem ex­hi­bi­tion on now

The Shed - - News -

Ilan Wit­ten­berg’s Faces of Jerusalem se­ries is adorn­ing the walls of the Te Uru Waitakere Con­tem­po­rary Gallery in Auck­land. This body of work saw Wit­ten­berg re­ceive the ti­tle of 2015 Auck­land Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year from the NZIPP.

Wit­ten­berg trav­elled to the Old City of Jerusalem and ap­proached many of its mer­chants from each quad­rant of the city, the Mus­lim Quar­ter, the Jewish Quar­ter, the Ar­me­nian Quar­ter, and the Chris­tian Quar­ter.

All the por­traits are dis­played to­gether, giv­ing the au­di­ence an in­sight into a city that most will never ex­pe­ri­ence in their life­time. You’ll get an un­der­stand­ing of the cul­ture, the his­tory, and the strug­gles of ev­ery­day life in the area, where there is political un­rest.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open un­til May 1, from 10am to 4.30pm daily.
