Photo-Art Exhibition

The East London Advertiser brought me the news that Gitl Braun, an Orthodox Jewish woman artist staged her own one-woman photo-art exhibition, in London’s East End, in the Jagonari Women’s centre. (Open from May 8 to June 1.) It is titled ‘Eve’s Daughters’ and brings together the Orthodox Jews of Stamford Hill with the East End’s first-generation Muslims. The article says that, “what [these communities] have in common is women struggling to break free from restraints of their religious cultures.” The artist however talks about “bringing people together, focusing on similarities… Women share some experiences behind a mask of culture. But we all have ‘human’ experiences.”
