Judah Passow Talks Jewish Photography - JDOV Talks

What’s the connection between being Jewish and being a photographer? Why do I take the kind of photographs that I do? In my talk, I explore the Jewish values that drive my work and show how I try to use my camera as an agent of social action. The philosopher Abraham Joshua Heschel famously once said that “A Jew is asked to take a leap of action rather than a leap of thought”. The values that I was brought up with demand that my photographs challenge people to see the flaws in the world we live in and to take responsibility for repairing them.
