’50 Faces’ of the Holy Land is a photographic exhibition commissioned by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales to highlight and promote the lives of the faithful in Israel, Gaza and the Occupied Territories.
The pictures, taken by Marcin Mazur, show how the faces of people are marked with the history, the diversity, the joys and sufferings of the Holy Land. Each face tells a story. Each person, a memory.
People viewing the exhibition are invited to look at the photographs and into the eyes of the people. For some of the photographs it’s easy to see which part of the community they come from, but for some it’s more difficult to decide and this was done deliberately to show the common humanity in all the faces.
The exhibition will be on display at the Metropolitan Cathedral from Monday 1 October to Sunday 21 October 2018. On Wednesday 17 October, Archbishop Emeritus, Patrick Kelly, will celebrate the 5.15 pm Mass for the intention of the Holy Land.
