Dear Photographers,

In these challenging days, when all of us across the globe are experiencing feelings of tension and uncertainty, we hope you are all healthy and keeping safe.

Here at PHOTO IS:RAEL, we will keep working as an independent cultural institution, aspiring to be a platform for expressing our voice, your voice and the voice of underprivileged communities, through the photographic language.

All of us want to be heard, to share our difficulties, to protest injustice, to create a dialogue – always, not only in times of crisis.

Keeping creative seems more important than ever these days. We want to hear your voices, as photographers, creators, individuals. We invite you to share it with us and together we will try to be a voice of sanity, creativity, and social outreach.

We believe in the power of photography!

Wishing you all health and peace of mind and for better times to arrive very soon.



PHOTO IS:RAEL is a non-profit public benefit company.
Founded in 2012, we work to fulfill our goal of a “better society through the language of photography” by promoting social outreach and a dialogue between art and various communities across Israel. Since its formation, the company has offered platforms for exhibition and research and has spotlighted artistic and social topics through the language of photography.

We believe photography is a universal language which transcends cultural and gendered boundaries and is understandable to all. It is a language which bridges the gap between the central and the marginal and between disenfranchised communities and the public at large.
