Israel, Captured

The Jerusalem-based photographer Ahikam Seri is a great interpreter of contemporary Israel. Seri has shot powerful images from the second Intifada and, most recently, he created a gritty and unsentimental series on Arafat’s funeral in Ramallah.

His strongest images, though, capture subjects that are anathema to his own national politics: Seri’s series on West Bank settlers is both challenging and humane. It’s a valuable glimpse into a society that perplexes, frustrates, and captivates most of Israel and the word.
