Can I Say Shalom?

Miriam Reik

An exploration of Jewish identity and community in NW London in the early 1990s from a photographer who participated in the 1992 Unclear Family project in Crook, Co Durham.

Reik wrote: ‘This is a story about a community. At the same time, it is also a personal retrospection into a world that both attracts and repels… My upbringing was happy, sheltered and womblike… As I grew up I found that membership seemed to exclude my participation in other, outside worlds.’
