These are controversial times for citizens and photographers around the world.
We at PHOTO IS:RAEL are proud to announce the “Social Photography Month” and encourage everyone to exercise their civil right and speak out their voices through photography.
In order to raise awareness of the importance of photography as a tool that leads to social change,
we invite photography lovers around the world to post photos and images to your Instagram page in which you express your agenda – take a stand, express protest or a desire for change.
Attach the hashtag #PhotoAgenda to your photos and tag our Instagram page @photois.rael and we will feature selected photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages throughout the month.
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.
