A new photography exhibit in Israel showcases a community The Fellowship has been helping for years: Ethiopian immigrants.
The Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv recently opened a new photographic exhibition – Our Way – that showcases the photographs of Gidon Agaza, who was born in Ethiopia and immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia at the age of 11. The photographic exhibition documents authentic and special moments in the everyday life of the Ethiopian community now in Israel, as well as "memories" from the past of Ethiopia through film and television.
When Gidon Agaza was a young boy he bought a semi-professional camera and began photographing portraits of people in his close environment and different events. After he completed his military service he studied photography at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. At the same time he decided to focus on photographing his community and documenting its integration into local society, and set up a private photography archive. The exhibition is a culmination of his work and archive.
