In a place and time where the past and the present, the personal and the political become inseparable, these works combine the universal artistic/photographic vernacular with the local/national/cultural. Their art presents a unique personal vision of the artists’ concerns and bears witness to their engagement to improve both the reality and the image of their homeland. Their contribution is not only to photography or the arts, but to the articulation of Israeli culture itself.
