Manhattan Mincha Map: Photographs by Jaime Permuth

January 30, 2005 - June 19, 2005
Selz Foundation Gallery

Jaime Permuth, born and raised in Guatemala and now living in New York City, was fascinated by the signs depicting Mincha minyans in Manhattan. In the aftermath of September 11, he began documenting the diverse places where Jewish men congregate for afternoon prayers. His photographs invite the viewer into business and commercial environments that transform daily into intensely private and emotionally-charged places.
