Photojournalism Exhibition

Yesterday we went on a field trip. My Thursday Senior Citizen learning program in Ofra includes a Cinema class, and the teacher took us along with her students to the Eretz Israel Museum, Ramat Aviv. They even picked me up on the way, so I only had to leave my house an hour later than usual.
The International and Israeli Photojournalism Exhibition
The largest and most important exhibition of its kind includes a selection of World Press Photo photojournalism and the best of local photojournalism - Local Testimony. Tens of photographers from Israel and abroad will participate in the exhibition, displaying a sequence of events in selected photographs taken over the past year; the photographs refer to war and peace, politics and society, art and culture, nature and the environment, sports, portraits, multimedia presentations, and more.

Curator: Vardi Kahana

Open: December 7, 2017 - January 20, 2018

We could easily see the "agenda" of the curator in the juxtaposition of the pictures as they were exhibited. And of course we learned more of what makes a good picture in terms of the composition and how it tells a story.
