This Place: Prints from the Archive
February 2016 – July 2016
This Place explores the complexity of Israel and the West Bank, as place and metaphor, through the eyes of twelve renowned photographers – Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, Nick Waplington, and author of the project Frederic Brenner. The twelve artists spent extended periods in Israel and the West Bank, free to approach their subjects as they chose. They travelled throughout the region and engaged with a remarkable variety of individuals and communities. While the exhibition presents twelve distinct perspectives, several key themes emerged, such as family, identity, home, and landscape and the environment. This exhibition features a selection of prints from the project archive, which includes more than 500 photographs, and coincides with a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, which runs from February 12 through June 5, 2016.
