A second volume followed, “Shalom Y’all: Images of Jewish Life in the American South,” introduction by Alfred Uhry.
His latest book, “New Beginnings: The Triumph of 120 Cancer Survivors” focuses on people whose diagnosis of cancer led to profoundly positive life altering experiences. Introduction by Jane Brody.
Aron has lately been working on large-scale multi-image panoramas of Israel by stitching together numerous frames into one photograph. Many of his photographs have been exhibited in major museums and galleries throughout the United States and Israel.
