Zeek adds a new landing page image every ┬áMonday, Wednesday and Friday. Since we relaunched the magazine in conjunction with the Forward last Fall, our art director has been using photos I’ve taken both here, in Europe, as well as in Israel and the US. Maya added this photo on Wednesday.

Shot in Venice last October, it’s one of a dozen or so pictures I took in Italy over the last year, of black figurines, used in window displays like this. The arrangement of little white kids, around the bust of the noticeably larger, young black woman, is particularly interesting. Their eyes are so vacant.
