“ ‘And Who Is My Neighbor?’ The Faces of CNEWA” introduces gallery visitors to the peoples of the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe served by Catholic Near East Welfare Association. This photo exhibition will take place on 1 November from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture.
Taken by a cadre of female photographers, who have tackled rough and even hostile conditions while on assignment, the images from “ ‘And Who Is My Neighbor?’ The Faces of CNEWA” reveal the innate dignity and beauty of every person, each one made in the image and likeness of God.
The photographs are drawn from CNEWA’s treasure trove of images commissioned for its award-winning magazine, ONE, which the Catholic Media Association has honored consistently as among the best in Catholic publishing in North America since the magazine began as “Catholic Near East” in 1974. These images represent a mere handful of photographs taken in Armenia, Ethiopia, India, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine between 1989 and 2022.
The photojournalism displayed at this show captures images of war, migration, education and poverty by highlighting the human reality behind these global issues — issues that from the ‘80s to the present remain pertinent.
Come out and support CNEWA at this 1 November exhibition. The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture is located at 18 Bleecker St, New York, NY.
