About this talk

Join Becky Behar, photographer, artist, and scholar, as she shares her ongoing project, 'Tu Que Bivas.' 

Rooted in her Sephardic upbringing, Behar's work delves into her family's heritage. Collaborating with her mother and daughter, she explores traditions and rituals, revealing how they shape generations. Through her photographs, Behar uncovers the resonance of her mother's teachings in her daughter's experiences, inviting us to reflect on the preservation and celebration of heritage. Discover Behar's journey of discovery as she explores the interplay between past and present, tradition and innovation. Together, we'll explore the power of visual storytelling to connect us to our roots and shape our legacies.
