As part of Faith & Form, the current exhibition at The Anne Frank Center USA, the German-born photographer and writer Julian Voloj will present an illustrated talk exploring themes inherent to his work. For over two decades Voloj has documented Jewish diaspora and Jewish heritage sites in countries as diverse as Cuba, Lithuania, and Morocco. His portrait photography includes depictions of African-Americans who adopted Judaism in an attempt to foster identity; Hasidic Jews recreating Eastern European shtetls in the heart of Brooklyn; World War II veterans from the former Soviet Union, as well as B’nai Anusim reclaiming their heritage.

Documenting Diaspora is a unique opportunity to view the highlights of Julian Voloj’s remarkable portfolio, and to learn more about the diverse Jewish communities he photographs. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A and a reception. Program length including discussion: 90 minutes.
