"[This book] embodies the Buddhist wisdom about change, life, and the
world more than anything written after the events of that day."

OUR COMMON BONES
“Inside Terrorism: The X-Ray Project” is on view in Croton Falls, N.Y., at the Schoolhouse Galleries through March 15.
The traveling exhibition, curated by photographer Diane Covert, is a collection of CT scans and X-rays of terror victims, extracted from the brimming files of the Shaare Zedek Medical Center and Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.
As described by Georgette Bouveia in a short review in yesterday’s White Plaines Journal-News: “The works reveal a smashed hand and arm; a piece of a bomber’s watch embedded in a victim’s neck; and ordinary bolts and nails…studding vertebrae."
Covert’s stark and powerful point: In medical imagery of victims of bomb blasts in Israel and the West Bank, no viewer can distinguish between a Jew or a Muslim, a civilian or a combatant.
