Through 33 candid, black and white photographs, Castellana provides a glimpse into the life of New York City’s Orthodox Jewish South Williamsburg community. The images depict the modesty of the women’s clothing and hair and the prevalence of stores catering to living an orthodox life. This pious life is highly contrasted against the fast-paced world of New York City. The exhibition asks the question, “What does it mean to lead a devoutly religious life?”
