Hundreds of local photographers are taking part in this year’s “Local Testimony,” an annual photojournalism event, which is opening December 24 and being exhibited outdoors.
The free exhibition is intended to give photographers, videographers and photojournalists the opportunity to bear witness to the events of the last 12 months.
“Local Testimony” is usually exhibited in the Eretz Israel Museum but this year is being displayed in Midtown Tel Aviv, a complex of commercial and residential buildings in the city’s center.
The photographs will be exhibited along 2,321 meters of open space, beginning near the Hashalom train station, at 144 Begin Road, and extending north toward the Arlozorov train station.
The exhibition is intended to offer the big picture of Israeli life over the course of the last year, with 2020 offering a set of unique and historic challenges, including the pandemic, political uncertainty and multiple elections, weekly demonstrations countrywide against the government and the struggles of average Israelis to survive an unusual year.
“Local Testimony” will remain in place for a month, through January.
