Publisher's Description

This Place explores the complexity of Israel and the West Bank, as place and metaphor, through the eyes of twelve internationally acclaimed photographers, each of whom use photography to ask essential questions about culture, society and the inner lives of individuals. The photographers, all outsiders to Israeli and Palestinian society, represent an array of nationalities, cultures, and visual grammars; they are Frédéric Brenner, Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, and Nick Waplington

As each artist pursues their own line of investigation, what emerges is a dissonant and startling portrait; together, the highly individualised works combine to create not a single, monolithic vision, but rather a diverse and fragmented portrait, alive to all the rifts and paradoxes of this important and much contested space. This book accompanies a monumental exhibition, curated by Charlotte Cotton, which features more than 600 images, all newly-commissioned work, the product of four years of artist residencies. It includes an essay by the curator and extensive interviews with each of the participating artists.
