Ta – and no need for the snide remarks there, Andy… look forward to seeing it on 100Eyes. Great work, guys.

Wasn’t intended to be snide Ed, sorry if it came off that way. Its a bit of a joke as we were wanting to keep this quiet internet version quiet…..we really hope that people will attend the exhibit and especially the forum as these photographers will undoubtedly have a lot to say.

Its an important show, a collaborative effort if you are in London you should turn out to support this
project….there will be an online version, but the prints are stunning and the discussion is going to be very interesting.

Andy,sounds impressive, what size were the prints you saw?

by Barry Milyovsky | 22 Oct 2009 00:10 | lost in the, United States | | Report spam→
I haven’t seen them Barry, but I believe they are 20×30. Yoav is handling all of that, and he has done the edit for the magazine as well. Its Yoav’s baby.

The Israeli/Palestinian group effort that is at the core of this….and that the photographers are in many cases photographing the effects on their own communities. Thats why I think the discussion will be a must see…

by [former member] | 22 Oct 2009 14:10 | | Report spam→
It is unfortunate that these kinds of cooperative efforts between Palestinian/Israeli photographers, musicians, etc. is such a rarity. Failure to support them should be considered a war crime.

To be clear – captions are present in the exhibition every 5-6 images as opposed to under each individual image

It is definitely an interesting point Asim makes there in his blog.
Hope that can also be discussed during the panel discussion on Monday.

Looking forward to that, see you guys there.

I just wish Asim, you hadn’t used my e-mail asking you for any insights and linking to a rough edit as a press release.

by Yoav Galai | 24 Oct 2009 11:10 | London, United Kingdom | | Report spam→
In general I agree with a lot of what Asim has to say about many things…….its often a interesting point of view. But I wish he had chosen better words there.

Is the proportion of suffering or oppression shown correct (as this seems to be the main point of the attack)? I really didn’t count what Yoav included….in other words, for me, there was no scorecard. Certainly I would never argue that the Palestinians are not by far the victims of both the Israelis and their own leadership. But tell me, the Israeli woman who is killed in her bed in a rocket attack. is she not a victim of her own government as well? And isn’t this the point? Aren’t the many of the innocents on both sides victims of the same forces? This isn’t to deny Zionism, or Islamic extremism, its just to say that most people are neither and often they are the ones to suffer at the hands of the politicians.

The goal of the exhibition as I saw it was not to present a complete documentation of this particular issue. That would require much, much more and is beyond the scope of what Yoav could do. It was to make a statement of cooperation between the Palestinian and Israeli photographers and in that it has been successful. And hopefully it will increase awareness about some of the great work done by the Palestinian photographers, who until this year have been under appreciated. Fady Adwan, Mohammed Abed, Adib Katib, these boys are amazing.

At this same time hopefully this exhibit also shows that the differences between people can be overcome and that there is some hope for cooperation and peace. Isn’t that the goal? In other words, one blood.

the 1st draft, which i wrote this morning after running and reading is already long ;))….i need a day break (have been thinking/writing about it all day yesterday since Asim wrote me)….

i hope my response doesnt disappoint ;))…but, it will be long, what else is new ;)))))

I am looking forward to your response Bob but don’t worry, my nervous system can cope with the delay.

I would like to join the Mark Saeger, Andy Levin point of view and add that to use the exhibition to continue or even escalate the unending Israeli/Palestinian argument of who is right and who is wrong is irresponsible for anyone who has the slightest hope of peace in the region. The exhibition, as I understand it, is meant to transcend this argument and demonstrate a sympathetic understanding of all the victims of this 61 year old war.

Actually Arafiqui makes a very valid point about captioning.

I remember seeing an exhibition of the Kenyan electoral crisis in Nairobi last year. I left angry and bewildered at the photos, which seemed to me to be an orgy of suffering and indignity. Captions would have given that exhibition more context and certainly more journalistic integrity. So I think the fact that there is captions at this exhibition is important.

I disagree with Mark that it is ‘necessary’ to look at pictures of death and suffering, which is why I won’t personally be going to the exhibition or looking at 100 eyes.

Respect to you Yoav for bringing together something that you obviously care deeply about and believe in.

Read back Andy, I said that the fact that they are a part of the exhibition was important. Unfortunately Arafiqui didn’t know they were present when he wrote his post. Had he known I’m sure he would have written something different.

It’s the death and suffering I don’t want to see.

Mark, what do they speak for themselves? I’m surprised that having spent so much time in this part of the world you would find it ‘necessary’ to view such images. Myself I don’t. That says something about me, not the images.

I agree Andy, the talk sounds fantastic. Once again, before the sidetrack, respect to Yoav for pulling this exhibition together; it does send out an important message.

Oh yeah, and the fact that I won’t be looking at this on 100 Eyes (because I haven’t got Mark tucked up in bed with me to stroke my hand) gives me more time to look at all the other great stuff on that website.

I am not opposed to a two exhibition solution— one with just pictures and one with just captions. We must learn how to compromise— a quality that is often absent in the Israeli/Palestinian situation.
