Sojourn Israel

November 17, 2021 - January 3, 2022

Sean Alonzo Harris
Jody S. Sataloff Art and History Pavilion

At the end of 2019, I traveled to Israel with staff and students from the Center for Small Town Jewish Life at Colby College to document their educational experience. We were an eclectic group from all walks of faith, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and nonbelievers. The trip focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the history, culture, and conflict between Israel and Palestine. This body of photographs captures moments of everyday street life in between and through our shared learning and reflection on Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Nazareth.”
