Location: Irene and Davide Sala Gallery

Artist: Reli Avrahami, Israeli, born 1960

A series of photographs by Reli Avrahami, winner of the 2014 Kavlin prize for photography, is on view in the "Rhythm of Life" Gallery of The Jewish Art and Life Wing. Avrahami has been following members of her closer and farther circles through major life events, expanding it from a traditional perspective to one that encompasses rites of passage in contemporary Israeli society. This project is a collaboration of the Photography Department and the Jewish Art and Life Wing.
