Getting Closer: Understanding the "Other"  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Presented by the photographer Natan Dvir

Cosponsored by: MSU School of Journalism, MSU Museum, Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, Division of Residential and Hospitality Services: Residence Education and Housing Services, MSU Muslim Studies Program, MSU Jewish Studies Program, MSU Department of Religious Studies, Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities, MSU Peace and Justice Studies Program.

Natan Dvir is an Israeli photographer who has used photography as a means to explore the power of religious and political beliefs. His project Eighteen, environmental portraits of Arab youth in Israel, will be on exhibition at Brody Hall beginning in early October. Dvir describes this project as "an artistic point of contact serving as an invitation to get closer.... An inside view by one who is typically regarded as an outsider. If I, a Jewish Israeli man, have been accepted and was allowed into my subjects' personal lives - so can others." Mr. Dvir will speak about his projects including Eighteen, Belief, and others, and will discuss the role of contemporary photography in shaping perspectives and in leading social/political changes.

Natan Dvir received his MBA from Tel Aviv University and his MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts (NY), after which he became a faculty member at the International Center of Photography (ICP). Based in New York City he photographs around the world. Natan's main projects have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Europe, South America and Israel.
