ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Ammar Younis

“Araf,” 2011

“Araf” is a monochrome portrait of 94-year-old Fakhriyya Abdallah Younis. The photographer, from the Arab town of Umm el-Fahm, offers a sense of the subject’s emotional state and the weight and wisdom of her years. “Araf” is part of the international exhibition “Passage to Israel” at the Sagamore Hotel in the South Beach area of Miami Beach through June 30, as part of a “Peace 70” initiative (passagetoisrael.org).
