Striking Portraits Pose the Question: Is the Subject Israeli or Arab?

Bar Am-David

This photographic ensemble is reflecting visual culture on multiple levels of daily difficulties facing the need of existence despite the fact of cultural differences and highly problematic living area. The photographs reflect the infrastructure of private and collective identity and co-existence focusing on the Israeli-Arab conflict.

The images represent a human vivid kaleidoscope including people at different ages, shapes, cultures and origins. This meeting takes place in London as a multi-cultural and cosmo-political base for people from different nations all over the Middle East. Through this professional experience I hope to encourage a deep and honest discussion about observing humans as equals in spite of prejudice and stereotypes.—Bar Am-David
