Children of Abraham presents 66 photographs of the monotheistic religions: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, by renowned Magnum photographer Abbas. Since 1978 Abbas has documented through his camera lens the “political and social life of societies in conflict.”
This exhibition is the culmination of over 16 years of research and travel by the artist to record religious practices and their manifestations in all parts of the world. This is Abbas’ first exhibition in America exclusively devoted to the theme of religion. Abbas will travel from Paris, France to present an artist talk, and a series of related programs and events are planned.
