Selected from the Permanent Collection portfolio In the Jewish Neighborhoods, 1946-76, the forty-six photographs on view by renowned street photographer Jules Aarons (1921-2008) vary in subject, site location, and span the artist’s career. While many of the images have appeared independent of each other in a variety of publications and exhibitions, grouped in this portfolio, they take on new meaning and highlight Aarons’s active exploration of historic and contemporary Jewish neighborhoods at home and throughout his many travels. This exhibition includes images of Boston’s ethnically diverse West End, the historically Jewish districts in Paris as well as places symbolic of Aarons’s childhood and family communities in the Bronx and Rockaway, NY. Organized by Koch Curatorial Fellow Nina Gara Bozicnik.
