PHOTO IS:RAEL 2021 International Photography Festival now is over!

PHOTO IS:RAEL invites artists to submit proposals for the central exhibition of the 9th International Photography Festival, Israel’s largest photography event that will be taking place in November 2021 for the ninth time in Tel Aviv.
This year the theme of the festival is “Meeting Point“.
A meeting point is a gathering place of acquaintances or strangers, different or alike, which may be either random or carefully planned. A meeting point is also a junction of ways, cultures and views from which a split or a merge are both possible. It is a physical or virtual space in which one can exchange ideas, fight or embrace.
After a year in which the daily meetings we’d taken for granted were canceled or transformed, the concept of a “Meeting Point” has become ever more significant. At the upcoming festival we will seek to explore this concept from a variety of angles and interpretations, using innovative methods of representation through photography and other forms of media. We are looking for all kinds of meeting points – between generations, technologies, man and nature, truth and fiction – and will attempt to examine that specific point or moment in which the natural becomes artificial, and dream becomes reality.
