Photo Fund Winner Update: Ahikam Seri

leave a comment »

Israeli photographer, Ahikam Seri concentrates his work in his motherland where he is conscious to depict the many different societies that live there. He is very interested in the sub-cultures of Israel such as Jews living in the West Bank, African immigrants to Palestine, and the unrecognized Bedouin population. The Bedouins have chosen to side with the Palestinians for religious and socio-economic reasons, which Seri documented as a way to illuminate the Israeli-Arab conflict. In 2003, this particular photographic study of the Bedouin struggle won Seri the FiftyCrows IFDP and the National Geographic “All Roads” award in 2004.
