Diaspora: Homelands in Exile Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 1978, French photographer Frédéric Brenner has been chronicling the Jewish Diaspora by producing visual social histories of Jewish communities. Diaspora is a photographic record of his 25-year search for the Jewish population in 40 countries over five continents. Volume I, 344 pages, is a collection of 262 of Brenner's more than 80,000 photographs, the most extensive and diverse visual record of Jewish life ever created. A four page color insert includes two full-color photographs. Volume II is 164 pages of evocative essays by leading intellectuals on the meaning and significance to each of them of 60 of Brenner's photographs, reproduced here in smaller format. Diaspora is a landmark project that captures the scope and dynamism of one of the world's oldest, most diverse communities, and challenges stereotypes held by Jews and non-Jews alike.

Book News Annotation:

This oversize, two-volume visual anthology is based on Brenner's travels, 1978-2002, to document the Jewish diaspora. Volume 1 contains b&w photographs of Jews living globally. Among the diverse images is a spiritual gathering of Jews and Navajos, US Jewish gay and lesbian families, a Purim holiday safari in South Africa, and Polish Jews who have re-discovered their roots. Volume 2 offers commentaries by 26 leading intellectuals—including postmodern theorist J. Derrida—on selected photos. Brenner (MA, social anthropology) has exhibited his photographs in his native France and New York, and is also a film director.
