This is a past event.
Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 2:00pm to 3:15pmVirtual Event
Q & A with the artist!
In Tamim (unblemished, in Hebrew,) Zack Balber uses portrait photography to uncover the camouflaged identity (tattoos) of some of Judaism’s most unconventional Jews. Balber, Jewish himself, connected with the men he photographed while rediscovering his own heritage.
Zack Balber was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and moved to Miami at the age of thirteen, when he received his first camera. Years later, while still in school, he was hired to assist the fashion photographer Bruce Webber in his campaigns for Abercrombie and Fitch, Vera Wang, and Vanity Fair magazine.
He attended New World School of the Arts, graduating Summa Cum Laude in Creative Photography. His work has been displayed in Art Basel, Frost Museum, American Jewish University (LA), FAU Museum OCCA, MOCA NOAMI, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, (CIFO) Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, Locust Projects, Spinello Gallery, Fredric Snitzer Gallery, The Armory, Art Hong Kong, and Primary Projects.
