BIDDEFORD -- Congregation Etz Chaim in Biddeford will welcome photographer Louis Davidson on Sunday, Aug. 20 for a special presentation of Synagogues Around the World.
Davidson will make a Virtual Reality presentation displaying an amazing selection of synagogues.
The free presentation will be held at the Congregation Etz Chaim synagogue at 36 Bacon St. in Biddeford at 7 p.m. Coffee and desserts will be served.
Davidson graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a degree in architecture. After a diverse career including working on the original World Trade Center project, Davidson has turned his architect’s eye to photography.
Predictably, his oeuvre stresses architectural subject matter while also including social documentary and fine art photography. Since 2006, Davidson has concentrated on photographically documenting synagogues around the world and he has photographed over 614 synagogues in 38 countries, including every one of the continental USA’s 48 states and provinces of Canada.
The author of numerous photo books, Davidson’s work has been exhibited internationally and is featured in the permanent collection of the Beit Hatfutsot Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv, Israel.
He lives with his wife, Ronnie, and dog, Harley, in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Los Angeles, California.
His work may be found on the Internet at www.Synagogues.org.
