A Panoramic View by Josef Koudelka

Along the separation wall. ”Wall” is Magnum photographer Josef Koudelka’s compelling exploration along Israel’s West Bank barrier and how it has imprinted on the landscape.

”Wall” is part of a more comprehensive project that was initiated by French photographer Frédéric Brenner (who has tirelessly worked on issues around Jewish culture, community and identity). This project, known as This Place aims to explore Israel from the perspective of territory and metaphor, through the eyes of twelve internationally recognised photographers, who were invited to spend eight months on site, in residence, with the aim of looking beyond the dominant political narrative in order to examine the complexity of the site, as well as the echoes and effects it has had throughout the world. Their mission is therefore not to judge, but to raise questions and awareness. > MORE
