Julia Margaret Cameron, Photographer
October 21, 2003 – January 11, 2004

Some 90 rare photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron (British, 1815-1879), one of the most important figures in the history of photography, will be on view in this retrospective featuring Cameron's best work drawn from collections in Europe and the United States. Cameron came to photography in mid-life, and quickly excelled in the art form, which offered Victorian women the rare opportunity to achieve professional recognition. This exhibition is organized by the National Portrait Gallery, London, in collaboration with the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television, Bradford. The Getty is the third and final venue on the exhibition's tour, after showings at the other two British museums. Available in conjunction with this exhibition is Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs, by Julian Cox and Colin Ford (The J. Paul Getty Museum, 2003), the first volume to reproduce Cameron's entire oeuvre.

Hillel at UCLA presents Reconstructing the West Bank
Photographs by Shelley Gazin

October 30th - December 6th 2003

"These images are my remnants of hope," says artist/photographer Shelley Gazin of her new exhibit Reconstructing the West Bank, which documents her 1983 road trip. Gazin, a documentary photographer with a 20-year career in fine-art photography, photojournalism and portraiture, glimpsed the power of co-existence and bears witness to a fragile, threatened but hopeful peace. Reconstructing the West Bank is Gazin's is a concept piece and narrative rolled into one, recreated from memory and digitally rendered on frayed canvas in washed hues and sepia. This exhibit dares you to revisit the site of conflict--whose resolution may prove to be the most important and urgent of the century - and to rekindle your imagination, to imagine peace. Education is an essential ingredient in that quest and this exhibit brings a lesson home.

Photographs by Shelley Gazin: Case Studies in Spiritual Pluralism  are photo-based narratives and are available for travel as independent exhibitions. Titles include: Looking for a Rabbi (Skirball Museum & Cultural Center, Los Angeles 2001; Rabbinic Dialogue Series, University of Arizona Judaic Studies, Tucson, AZ 2002; Award-winning pieces selected for the American Jewish Museum/JCC of Greater Pittsburgh, Boca Raton & Boston traveling exhibition 2001-02). Rue des Rosiers slated for the French Consulate, Los Angeles 2004. Shelley Gazin is an affiliated artist of the Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity, International, a member of Women in Photography International and a former Board Member of the Press Photographers Association of Greater Los Angeles.
