This unforgettable collection of twelve photo-essays, made by internationally acclaimed photographer Abraham Menashe, will stir the heart, move the conscience and ignite the imagination. Each image is an offering—be prepared to laugh, cry and see with new eyes.
Abraham Menashe speaks to the power of light. His lyrical and poetic vision embraces humanity’s plight and celebrates its promise. Three decades of photography—mostly black-and-white, including previously unpublished work, are gathered in this 236 photographic retrospective. From the sublime, Inner Grace, to the playful, Celebrities In Disguise, the images reach beyond a concern for society’s outcast, the poor and mentally ill, to define a new genre of photography, infused with the photographer's personal theology.
This theology points its audience to the generosity of a universe, ready to redeem those willing to be awakened, educate those in need to be informed, and comfort those who thirst to be consoled. The photographs sustain rather than divert, inviting us to look, look again, and awaken.
From Menashe’s preface, “As we find our way (in whatever capacity) into light’s domain—a domain whose nature is one of optimism, generosity and revelation, we release the nectar contained within Psalm 34, a psalm that says: Taste and see that God is good.”
