Exile at Home: Chronicle of a People
Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the modern state of Israel, this collection of photographs focuses on Jews who have returned from exile in the Diaspora to their “promised land”. The French photographer Frederic Brenner travelled for nearly two decades to photograph Jews in more than 40 countries, capturing the diversity of their experiences in different cultures. The 14 immigrant families depicted in Israel in the book were all previously photographed in Ethiopia, Morocco, Yemen, Russia, the USA, England or India. The photographs are accompanied by poems by Yehuda Amichai.
