I’m humbled and excited to take part in this year’s International Photography Festival in Israel as part of the Social Project ‘This Is My Story’ this May.
The festival annually partners with the US embassy, using photography and digital media as a tool to express one’s identity and community; bringing together Israeli photography students and both Jewish and Arab high school students. The participants will work together toward an exhibition that will ultimately be a part of the Israel Photography Festival this November.
The Israel Photography Festival
The Festival will take place this coming November 2017 for the fifth time and has become a well-known institution attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year. For a period of two weeks, the festival presents the work of leading international photographers from more than 30 different countries. The festival is initiated and produced by Platforma, a non-profit organization promoting the language of photography. The festival enables Platforma to present its values including innovation, social activism and building bridges between cultures and communities.
