The exhibition examines contemporary visions of Arab society in Israel focusing on young men and women at the pivotal age of 18 — an age at which they
graduate from high school, become legal adults and gain the right to
vote as Israeli citizens, but unlike their Jewish peers, most do not
join the military. The project is an outcome of close encounters between an Israeli Jewish
artist and Arab individuals in various communities around Israel,
and includes a series of environmental portraits as well as
documentation of these young peoples' lives and close surrounding.

"18" will
be the first exhibition to be included as part of The Other Israel Film
Festival program, which strives to foster social awareness and cultural
understanding. The Festival presents dramatic and documentary features
and shorts, as well as engaging panels about history, culture, and
identity of Arab citizens of Israel, who make up twenty percent of
Israel's population. Its mission is to promote awareness and
appreciation of the diversity of the state of Israel, provide a dynamic
and inclusive forum for exploration of and dialogue about its Arab
population.

Family of Mine: Work by Steve Bliss, Katrina d’Autremont, and Jason Houston

Posted by Daylight Books on

Family of Mine, photographs by Steve Bliss, Katrina d’Autremont, and Jason Houston, as well as City of Children, photographs by Monika Merva,
open today, November 6th at 6pm, at RayKo in San Francisco. As the titles suggest, these four artists photograph their families not as strict documents but as a way to better understand the relationships involved.

Monika Merva has photographed the children in and around her home, using a Contax medium format camera and natural light. The shots are not set up or posed, to avoid sentimentality and preserve the authenticity of what she has witnessed.

Jason Houston works as a photojournalist and who spends most of his time on assignment for editorial and NGO clients. Houston turns his lens on his family and records what he sees in a different way.

Katrina d’Autremont’s body of work, ” Si Dios Quiere…” (If God Wants) explores issues of intimacy and distance within her mother’s family in Argentina.

Steve Bliss is a father, photographing his sons. Like most parents, Bliss has an inherent, perhaps genetic interest in recording the fleeting states of his children’s development.
