Muslim and Jewish photographers build a statement and a bridge to give us a pictorial record by which we can further our understanding...

These photographers use the camera to fight what they hate most: ignorance and intolerance. They are a light unto the nations. Description of Photo: “coEXISTence:"

The Star of David is the Hebrew symbol of life and faith. It's connected with the Prayer Beads, a Muslim symbol of belief (33 beads symbolizing the 99 different names of God). Together they symbolize hope for coexistence and peace. Please go to the website for the listing of Photographer’s guided tour and lectures.
