[P]hotography is the ultimate tool that can capture meaningful frames out of the rapid flow of crucial events in Israel. Valuable photographic inscriptions are a result of meticulous witnessing by photojournalist and documenters and their personal involvement. Dedicated in situ documentation is intended to draw meaningful stories and can turn dangerous. Culturally valuable documentation is created when the photographer rises above the casual reporting of news to create a sensitive, poetic and thoughtful portrayal of life real fictions.
Documenters in Israel and Palestine: Arabs, Jews and foreign photographers, participate in an active search for genuine circumstances of manifestations of the psychic, body and territory that represent a local third space condition. The means of communication embody these Meta Space qualities by dissolving territorial partitions and borders. World wide digital distribution, shared news agencies assignments and documentary stories assimilate current documentation capability with Meta local actuality.” (Ami Steinitz)
