Stephen Shore is a pioneering photographer and influential teacher. From Galilee to the Negev is an intimate portrait of a multi-faceted place, exploring the landscape of Israel and the West Bank; its complexities and its contradictions. Shore travelled the length and breadth of the region, questioning and revealing through his camera lens. His visual inquiry explores the landscape itself and the people who live in it – the daily lives and the narratives that combine to create this fascinating place – at once beautiful and ugly, safe and hostile.A selection of texts by a diverse range of writers – who have each selected one photograph as a spring board – will be interspersed amongst the photographs, offering a gathering of voices and perspectives.
Acclaimed photographer Stephen Shore's visual enquiry into the land of Israel and the West Bank, and its complex layering of contemporary culture and endless history.
Arranged geographically, Shore's photographs create a living portrait of a beautiful yet contradictory place, from the north at Mount Hermon, through Tel Aviv, the Gaza border, Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Negev, to the Red Sea.
Shore’s photographs, many published here for the first time, draw attention to the minutiae of everyday life that are often overlooked, from peeling posters on public noticeboards, to archaeological sites mid-dig, to graffiti on storefronts.
Features essays from a range of eminent writers, including Yotam Ottolenghi and the New Yorker’s Jane Kramer, each a response to one of Shore’s photographs.
