T

he 2015 Israeli elections, like past election campaigns, were characterized by the control of campaign managers. Not a single statement nor photo-op was held without their strategic analysis and planning. The distance and lack of intimacy with the subjects removed an entire dimension of true, revealing photography. The kind of photojournalism that would show the people meant to represent us, make decisions for us, and even determine our fate. The politicians’ fear from the camera never seemed greater and their desire to control any publication related to them further distances the photographer. Their habit of deciding when and how they are covered in the media accepted, on the one hand, by weak media outlets on the verge of bankruptcy, with the sole objection of surviving, and on the other hand, from editorial boards with far from ethical affiliations to political parties and court reporters whose products look like candidates’ campaign broshures. Parties that offer us a better future shamelessly steal images for propaganda, in disregard of the law and the professional and economical dignity of the photographers. Despite all of these difficulties, it’s hard not to admire the images created by photographers in this round of elections. Another proof that there is no replacement for the professional photojournalist.

Museum, when i was 14, where I learned how to process and print film in a darkroom. Before long, in ninth-grader I had acquired print paper, chemicals and film for her first camera, a Canon AL1 that I still own.

Interview:

How different the world of photography today compering to when you just started?

Gali Tibbon How did you came to a decision to be a photographer ? I recall that my passion for pictures was ignited at age 14, when I found LIFE magazine’s The Year in Pictures book from 1956 on the shelves of my late grandfather’s library. I remember seeing those incredible grainy black-and-white pictures, I didn’t know a camera could do that. I fell in love with it. Which led me to a photography course at the Israel

you watching as a kid ? My favorites were Lucky Luke, Donald Duck and Asterix and Obelix , and these were magazines! What drives you in your day to day work ? I suppose the word that summarizes it all is -people- that’s the big bonus of being a photographer, you have an “excuse” to roam around and meet all sorts of people you wouldn’t normally meet. People with great personal stories, many characters.

What kind of assignment The world completely do you like and hate the changed, with the turn of most? the millennium my photo I don’t have a formula for world shifted from analog to this, I suppose it depends digital, the transformation on the day, on the person was swift. It changed the way I’m photographing that we think, the way we see, the day, our interaction. technical abilities. Some for better others for worst. Memorable moment at work? What is your favorite coI often shoot different pillour ? grimages in many countries, Black, like they say...once and on one of my trips you go black you can nev- to Ethiopia, an old lady er go back! recognised me from the What kind of cartoons were Old City in Jerusalem and


remeberd I photographed her couple of years before, when she made her pilgrimage to Jerusalem. She was very excited, and told all her friends and family I was from Jerusalem, and they all came up to me and started to kiss my hands. It was an awkward moment, but it made me understand how lucky I am that I live in Jerusalem. Do you think that this

profession changing you personality ? I often wonder if this profession is the disease or the cure. In many ways it allows my personality to come out and be me. But after a while it makes you (more) cynic and aggressive. What is your favorite thing about Jerusalem? The only city in the world with such a mix of people, languages, faces,

the old city . Every stone you step on has so much history, and if you have imagination your brain can fly. Please tell us about the Church It’s a special place, for me it’s like a kaleidoscope, the colors, textures, smells, sounds and face all blend together in a dazzling way. Multiple Christian denominations share the


church uneasily, the only house of prayer shared by so many different denomination, it’s a unique phenomena. The Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Armenian Apostolic, Coptic Orthodox, Ethiopian Orthodox and the Syriac Orthodox all have a presence in the church. It’s the place where most of the world believes Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected- the place where Christianity was born, and it’s only 20 minutes away from my house. Where do you love to travel to the most ? I love traveling period. To wake up in a new place, with it’s own smells, with it’s unique light, people, culture and landscapes.

ore than 108,000 Palestinians lost their homes in July/August 2014 during the latest Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip known as Operation Protective Edge. In total, over 18,000 housing units were lost with the majority of those displaced being children. For them, their room was their safe haven, their own little universe, which has now been destroyed. According to UN agencies operating in the Gaza Strip,it will likely take 20 years to rebuild, but what about the internal destruction of the soul. The children photographed in this piece were asked a simple question: What do you miss most from your room?

TEL AVIV BACKYARD By Yaniv Nadav


D

rug addicts with blank looks in their eyes, and an arm extended forward, became a permanent part of the landscape in the area surrounding south Tel-aviv Central Bus Station. They are always there, in daylight and in darkest nights. They cannot be missed, they walk slowly back and forth on the sidewalk and sometimes step into the road to try and get a few coins from random vehicles stopping at a nearby traffic light. Their drug trafficking stations are hidden in dark alleys and stairwells. The harsh reality of Tel Aviv’s backyards.
