A seminar dedicated to a critical investigation of contemporary Israeli photography

The book Il vento e il melograno. Fotografia Contemporanea israeliana brings together and presents the leading Israeli photographers working over the last 30 years and constantly present in numerous international events. This is a selection of artists, many of whom have contributed to the development of photography in Israel, capable of highlighting a creative phenomenon that thanks to its cultural depth and the variety of styles and poetics transcends national confines. This research, conducted over a number of years and based on repeated meetings and lengthy studio visits with the photographers, draws attention to the vivacity and the innumerable facets of a photographic movement that is among the most prolific, stimulating and modern on the contemporary scene.
