DiverCity Frankfurt: Photo Exhibition at International Cultural Centre
People from all over the world have always enriched Frankfurt. They bring a variety of experiences, skills and cultures which make Frankfurt a city worth living. 180 nations living in Frankfurt stand for Infinite diversity and culture, but also for multi-religious, peaceful and tolerant togetherness. They lend Frankfurt its International face.
Tel Aviv-born and Frankfurt-based photographer Rafael Herlich accompanied residents of his city in their everyday life. Each of his snapshots tells a different story, is inspiring and thought-provoking. His photographs display moments that pass by in the hectic pace of everyday life and the globalized world without being noticed or remain in the shadows. With “DiverCity FFM” Rafael Herlich portrays and visualises the diversity of Frankfurt’s residents showing them at work, living their religious or private life, in their leisure time on the streets and around places in the city.
Rafael Herlich was born in Tel Aviv in 1954. He came from Israel to Frankfurt am Main in 1975 after completing his photographic training. He quickly gained a foothold in the social, political and cultural circles of Frankfurt as a photographer. He then went on to acquire an outstanding reputation as a photographic chronicler of Jewish life in Germany.
Rafael Herlich has published six books of photographs and he promotes tolerance and respect for other religions by taking his photographic exhibitions to schools all over Germany.
Exhibition organised by partner cities Krakow and Frankfurt am Main.
