Democ­racy looks like this

A vir­tual pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brates Is­rael’s demo­cratic val­ues

The Jewish Chronicle - - ARTS&BOOKS/ -

he Is­rael Democ­racy In­sti­tute think tank and the in­ter­net news por­tal Walla! have joined forces in an ef­fort to cap­ture Is­raeli democ­racy on cam­era, writes Jack Prevezer. The project, called “High Ex­po­sure”, fea­tures images by lead­ing Is­raeli pho­tog­ra­phers which aim to de­pict the coun­try’s es­sen­tial demo­cratic val­ues. The pho­tos are be­ing dis­played in a vir­tual ex­hi­bi­tion on the IDI and Walla! web­sites. Vis­i­tors to the sites are in­vited to rate the work and sub­mit their own pho­tos on the theme. Four of the works are shown on this page — you can view the rest of the ex­hi­bi­tion at www.idi.org.il or hasifa.walla.co.il
