Humans of Israel
Exploring Israel’s Diverse Society Through Photography Sunday, April 30 @ 10:15 am and 5:30 pm
Humans of Israel combines photojournalism with digital
storytelling in order to give a sense of what makes Israel and the
diverse humans in it tick. With intriguing, thought-provoking
photographs and the stories about the humans behind them, the
project puts a human face on an extraordinary place and
challenges preconceptions those outsides of Israel may have by
communicating a sense of our shared humanity. The Humans of
Israel project offers a fresh look at the rich and remarkably
diverse lives of Israelis and showcases Israel’s diversity,
multiculturalism, and vibrant civil society.
Photographer, native Tel Avivi, and TEDx speaker, Erez Kaganovitz is the human
behind the Humans of Tel Aviv, Humans of Israel, and Humans of the Holocaust
projects. Through his work, Erez has helped bridge a cultural gap in society both within
and outside of Israel. His compelling work brings understanding, emotional connection, and unity to many around the world.
