Temple Solel’s quarterly art showcase currently features the work of Skip Feinstein, general surgeon, photographer and 10-year member of the temple. More than 30 of Feinstein’s photographs, which capture moments from Pakistan and Cuba to Mexico and France, will be on display in the North Hallway Gallery through Feb. 28.
On Jan. 5, Feinstein will speak at Temple Solel about his process and the inspiration behind his work. The reception will start at 10:30 a.m. and is open to the entire community.
Feinstein first became interested in photography in 1971, when he bought a camera to chronicle the birth of his daughter. In the last 10 years, he has photographed people and places as the leader of volunteer surgical teams around the world. His photos range from zebras and elephants in Tanzania to the aftermath of the 2005 earthquake in Kashmir, Pakistan, and the 2009 Tour de France.
The showcase of Feinstein’s work will be followed next year by a Temple Youth Art Show in March, travel photography by Lois Zuckerman in September and paintings by Shirley Rosenblum in December. Art showcases are selected by the Art@Solel committee.
