From ‘Gidget’ to Gaza


This 1994 photograph of young Israeli men lounging on the beach in Gaza with firearms taken by conflict photographer Alexandra Avakian is one of 150 wartime photographs currently on display at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. Avakian, who spent her teenage years in Malibu, is giving a free lecture Thursday at the exhibit called “Malibu Teen to Conflict Photographer and Beyond,” from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
