American Jewish Museum
Dina Kantor: Finnish and Jewish
October 14–December 27, 2013
Fine Perlow Weis Gallery
New York based photographer Dina Kantor explores the relationship between photography and the representation of individual identity and collective community. As the exhibition title suggests, Kantor is both Finnish and Jewish. Raised in Minnesota, Kantor was lured to Finland in 2006 to connect to an unknown aspect of her heritage and to explore what contemporary Jewishness might be like in the remote Nordic region.
