Loli Kantor - Beyond the Forest: Jewish Presence in Eastern Europe, 2004-2012
Israeli/American Fine Art and Documentary Photographer

Tuesday, September 29, 2015 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Loli Kantor


Fort Worth-based photo-essayist Loli Kantor has a family connection to Jewish life in Poland and Ukraine.

She uses her images to present engaging, touching portraits that express the determination of a people who simultaneously celebrate tradition and ambition in a homeland that has been reshaped by history. Her work is, in a way, a paean to her family history. Kantor was born in Paris to Holocaust survivors from Poland, both of which lost most of their families. She was raised in Tel Aviv and for three decades has made her home in Fort Worth, working as a fine art photographer and a freelancer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Kantor will discuss her story behind her multi-year project in a Dallas program on Tuesday, September 29, at HKS Inc.

At her program she will demonstrate both the art photographer's eye for composition and the news photographer's ability to capture a moving scene to tell a story. Combining black and white photography on film with color digital photography, Kantor turns the collection of single frames into a drama of survival and restoration.

In addition to her new book Beyond the Forest, Kantor's work includes a Fort Worth-focused book titled Heaven on a Biscuit about the legendary Hip Pocket Theatre. She is also an award-winning photographer with works in the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Lviv National Museum in Ukraine, Drohobych Palace of Art in Ukraine, the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, Lishui Museum of Photography in China and The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado.
