Finding Family Fragments: How do photographs meet photographs, 100 years later and thousands of miles away? The answer lies in a small box that was buried underground in a sewing machine in Russia for decades. These photos are copies of the ones that belong to Jeanette, who has worked for years to solidify her father’s legacy. The matching photos can be seen side by side in an exhibit last year titled, “Return to Gomel”, where dozens gathered to see Artway’s work in Belarus. Family ties are universal, crossing borders and cultures, in war and in peace.
This was apart of a photo walk series during the 20/20 Photo Festival in 2022 and in partnership with Unique Photo. This walk went through South Philly and stopped at Fleisher Art Memorial, The Da Vinci Alliance, and Jed Williams Studio.
