Project Punim


In 1996-97 Laura received a grant from the Guild at the Iowa Jewish Senior Life Center. The Life Center is a skilled nursing facility with 60 residents. It was her job to interview Center residents, learn of their lives and creating lasting images of them to hang in a permanent gallery on the walls of the home. Accompanying this photo exhibit, a book, Punim was created. Colorful photographs of individuals and their transcribed stories honor the residents and share treasures with their family and community. In 2005 Laura worked on a new Punim project with the Women’s Philanthropy Division of the Jewish Community Federation of the Greater East Bay at the Reutlinger Community Center for Jewish Living in Danville, California.
