Giving Peace Faces is a contemporary Photography Portraiture project about peacemaking grassroots organisations in Israel and its neighbouring countries, which provide opportunities for dialogue and non confrontational relationships.
I want to somehow comprehend how people who were born into a conflict where ‘the other’ has been stereotyped as an evil entity for 60 years are driven to making peace and dialogue happen.
I am portraying people who use their own lives as a tool to implement the changes they believe will make a difference.
I focus on the individuals rather than the organisations they belong to, for reasons explained below.
Many portraits and more information can be found on http://peaceface.blogspot.com
