Through a photographic journey New York artist Aviva Klein will introduce you to what once was ‘THE YOUTH OF 1948’. Aviva will visit 24 selected ‘YOUTH OF 1948’ interviewees in their homes. She will capture their dignity and achievements, their vision and heritage in each of her portraits. These new shot portraits are all taken with analog photography.
Next to these newly created photographs, we will hang the pictures from 1948-era of these very same people. Private pictures from their youth (high quality scans as these artifacts are too precious to go on tour). Each photograph will give you a private insight, a historical setting or even a whimsical story about their lives at the end of the British Mandate or at the beginning of the State of Israel.
