Children of Abraham presents 66 photographs on the three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, by internationally renowned Magnum photographer Abbas. Since 1978 Abbas has documented through his camera lens the “political and social life of societies in conflict.” This exhibition is the culmination of over 16 years of research and travel by the artist to record religious practices and their manifestations in all parts of the world. This exhibition at the Arthur Ross Gallery is Abbas’ first exhibition in America exclusively devoted to the theme of religion.
