Kat Cheng, Bar Mitzvah Photographer
Jonas Cuénin, a New-York based writer for La Lettre, has a passion: Irving Penn, more specifically, one of the photographer's most unforgettable works: small jobs. It is in homage of this work that he started a web series entitled "Pictures and Men", devoted to those who are never featured in the photographic world. Every two weeks, he reveals the universe of one of these photographic enthusiasts. For this seventh edition, Kat Cheng, a New York Bar Mitzvah photographer, opens the doors to this Jewish coming-of-age ceremony celebrated in some of the most elegant locations throughout the city. We discover with her how this authentic religious tradition has been transformed into an occasion for hip celebrations.
