Jaffa hosts International Photography Festival

Some 200 Israeli, foreign photographers participate in this year’s festival, focusing on themes of environment, community, art

Some 200 Israeli and foreign photographers and as many as 30 curators will take part in the 2012 International Photography Festival, which will be held during the intermediate days of Sukkot (October 2-8) at the Jaffa Port and other locations.
According to organizers, this year’s festival will be focused around the themes of the environment, community, and art.
The festival will include a project in collaboration with Google, as well as several exhibitions in which photographers will select the works of their colleagues.
The Shpilman Institute for Photography will present an integrated project of exhibitions and video screenings, and huge photos with “harsh messages on the boundaries between society and art” will be showcased on the port’s buildings.
Some of the exhibitions are free, but tickets should be purchased to see the whole festival. A single entry card costs NIS 39 (about $10), and a family card (a couple and up to three kids) costs NIS 78 ($20).
