‘Lost in Time’ Documenting the Jewish CommunityIn the contemporary society, Jewish community is an unorthodox group. Isolating themselves from the rest of the society, Jewish people form a unique community. Because of the distinctness of its culture and attire, the Jewish neighborhood gives off a vibe that forces its visitors to go through an illusory experience of visiting a nation within a nation, living in their own time. Containing no reference of time, the Jewish community allows outsiders to experience an illusory passage of time. As a result, the audiences of the photographs are not sure if the subjects are figures from the present or the past.
