    Danger!

    This one deserves a commentary. This shot is planned, though very fast and with some luck. It also reveals something about my sentiment, when it comes to the debate about Muslims in the Western societies in general, and Palestinians in the Israeli society particularly. The sign says “Danger – construction zone” (or more precise, they are building here).The danger part…

    El Gordito

    I took this portrait of my friend, Maor, some time ago. It was a little spontaneous, we had been talking about doing a couple of shots for a little while, when one day I told him, yallah, let’s do it. He agreed and we went outside the office building. At that time we worked in the Fiverr building in Tel…

    Israeli flag on a small island

    The Israeli flag waving on a small island outside the harbor in Jaffa. I’m not particularly nationalist, or rather – not at all. I am Israeli, even though originally from Denmark, and though I like, yes, even love, many aspects of my country, there are also many I strongly dislike. I feel loyal to my country as well, but I’m…

According to the Quran, this is the Holy, al-Quds, where Muhammad went up to heaven on his night journey, and later led a prayer for the prophets of God, where the Aqsa mosque is erected today. A Palestinian…

And if the fro doesn’t do it, then just look for his slogan on his tshirt: I shoot RAW. If these two aspects weren’t enough, then you can easily relate to…

    Monday Recommends: Sean Tucker

    Today’s recommendation is what I would call a “thinking photographer”. By that I’m not saying that other photographers are not thinking or considering what they do or how they do it. But often, what I see from other photographers is consideration of technical aspects, rather than more “philosophical” aspects of their photography. For example the Northrup couple and Peter McKinnon,…

    Monday Recommends: Peter McKinnon

    Time for a new Monday Recommends. This time I’d like to present you to Peter McKinnon, a Canadian photographer/videographer (so you know that he’s a nice guy), who has an amazing inspirational YouTube channel. Peter is known for his B-rolls and positive mood. However, though he does have some tutorials on his channel, his value for me is much more…
