The decade in pictures

December 22, 2009

Ten years in pictures — a period defined by attacks, the world economy … and the onward march of celebrity culture.

This has been a decade which, more than any other, has been defined by the suicide bomber, since that fateful day in September 2001 when Al Qaeda terrorists crashed airliners into the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.

Weegee's New Yorkers

December 10, 2009

Criminals, drunks, murder victims… a Jewish immigrant called Usher Fellig photographed them all — and turned them into works of art.

The 60s exposed

October 15, 2009

They say that if you can remember the 60s then you weren’t really there. It was the decade which represented a huge flowering of talent — artistic, musical, political and social.

Now the National Portrait Gallery has opened a major new exhibition of photographs of the most iconic musicians of the time — and many of the “recording angels”, the photographers, were Jewish.

Photographer Gered Mankowitz is heavily represented in the show, in which there are 150 photographs, 100 of which are exhibited for the first time.

Orthodox life revealed

By Simon Round, October 2, 2009

At first sight, Frederic Aranda and Chasidic Jewry seem worlds apart. One is rooted in tradition, Orthodoxy and halachah, while the other is a young, award-winning fashion photographer who spends his time working with models and stylists.

Yet, because of a chance experience at university, Aranda has been able to gain access to Charedi communities around the world to produce a collection of revealing images of Orthodox life.
