Kurdish Sufis by Kaveh Golestan, East Kurdistan
In Kurdish we call the Kurdish Sufis Dervish, their ceremony resembles Kurdish folk dancing, as they hold hands in a vigorous beat that will have every head in the place swaying to the beautiful sound of Kurdish daff and religious chanting. Kurdish dervishi’s ceremony entails many rituals, with the primary ritual ordering it’s mystic followers to embrace Dhikr, involving the remembrance and gratitude for Allah.
Bruce Davidson - East 100th Street
"For two years in the 1960s, Bruce Davidson photographed one block in East Harlem. He went back day after day, standing on sidewalks, knocking on doors, asking permission to photograph a face, a child, a room, a family. Through his skill, his extraordinary vision, and his deep respect for his subjects, Davidson’s portrait of the people of East 100th Street is a powerful statement of the dignity and humanity that is in all people."
