documentary photography – observing the lifestyles of the local dwellers. this album includes photographs taken during visits to various unpopular and non-tourist residential areas of Israel as well as some of the political events in the center of the country. it is not my idea of agitation or political explanation.
First series of photographs taken during my first visit to Jisr az-Zarqa. Jisr az-Zarqa – the Arab town in Israel that is located almost in the middle of the country. I visited this small town with the group of other Israel’s photographers with an idea to document the life of the people of this town.
Bedouin sheep market is special place and must-see event, especially before the Muslim religious holidays.
tense atmosphere created by high prices for sheep and the complete absence of the female half of the population. the second part of this day was spent in a few bedouin villages, where the atmosphere was much more hospitable. as well as in Jisr az-Zarqa, children and young people make up a large part of the population.
Political demonstrations are very frequent phenomenon in Israel by reason of democracy and freedom of speech (ok, almost complete freedom of speech).
