Poland and Palestine: Two Lands and Two Skies consists of portraits made in the 1930s by photographer Ze’ev Aleksandrowicz (b. 1905, Krakow; d. 1992, Tel Aviv). After his death, his family discovered hislife’s work—over 15,000 negatives. These images show their subjects in two distinct cultural contexts—in the streets of Kraków and in distant Palestine. In turn, the photographs become the starting point for telling stories about the relationship between these two worlds, full of contrasts and contradictions.
