One country: 12 different worlds. For the first time in the UK, Frédéric Brenner presents his astonishing 12-monograph project of capturing Israel and the West Bank as place and metaphor through the lenses of 12 of the world’s most acclaimed photographers, including Josef Koudelka, Stephen Shore, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall and Nick Waplington. The result is 12 penetrating and provocative views, alive to all the rifts and paradoxes of this important and much contested space.

The celebrated photographer Frédéric Brenner has spent the last 25 years capturing Jewish life and culture in more than 40 countries. Witty, moving and uplifting, his photographs document communities that no longer exist as well as a new, vibrant world of Jewish life. Now published as Diaspora: Homelands in Exile, this extraordinary visual anthology depicts the immense diversity of the Jewish people.
