This Place explores the complexity of Israel and the West Bank, as place and metaphor, through the eyes of 12 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 areFrédéric Brenner, Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall and Nick Waplington.
This book accompanies a monumental exhibition, curated by Charlotte Cotton, which features more than 600 images, all newly-commissioned work and the product of four years of artist residencies. It includes an essay by the curator and extensive interviews with each of the participating artists. Thanks to MACK (London).
