From an idea of the photographer Frédéric Brenner, two hundred pictures illustrating the perspective of twelve photographers on Israel and the West Bank are on show at the DOX in Prague. The joint exhibition is entitled This Place, curated by Charlotte Cotton and conceived as a project of photographic investigation of one of the most contested territories in the world. Brenner asked himself and a diverse group of photographers—Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Fox Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall and Nick Waplington—each to find a visual approach of his or her own, going beyond the urgency of coming up with answers and tackling the complexity of those regions, in order to create “not a single, monolithic vision, but rather a diverse and fragmented portrait.” In addition to the volume that accompanies the exhibition, the work of each photographer will be published in a separate monograph. Next stops for the exhibition: Tel Aviv (May 2015) and the United States (Palm Beach, October 2015; New York, February 2016).
