Ethiopian Jews Sigd Celebration Photography Opening

Ethiopian Jews Sigd Celebration Photography Opening

Here is a link to a video of my opening at the JCC in Providence ,R.I. of images I had taken over 26 years ago when I began my photography career.

Photography exhibit documenting the Sigd Celebration in Ethiopia and Israel.

These images are being shown with Israeli photographer Gidon Agaza who has been documenting this celebration in Israel for the past 13 years. The contrast of the same celebration in two countries is important. I was photographing the end of one journey for the Ethiopian Jews and Gidon the beginning of their new journey in Israel. The celebration has continued to be celebrated in Jerusalem and has become a national holiday as well
