Photography Exhibition for a joint project for
Israeli and Palestinian photojournalists
"Frames of Reality", a joint initiative of the Peres Center for Peace and "Local
Testimony", aims to cultivate personal and professional dialogue between Palestinian and Israeli photojournalists. The inaugural workshop, which was held throughout2008 in Beit Jala, comprised joint Palestinian-Israeli encounters, which included professional critique and discussion.
The project concludes in an exhibition, in which each photographer presents a photo essay which is an observation on the reality of life in this region. These works document aspects of everyday life, as well as news events, from the photographer's viewpoint, while expressing their unique voice and style.
The exhibition is accompanied by a photography book (in Hebrew, Arabic and English), that features these photo essays alongside the photographer's personal texts.
