In the picture with Judah Passow – Shattered Dreams: Israel and the Palestinians

April 23, 2008


Judah Passow, one of the leading UK based photojournalists, presents images from over 25 years covering the Middle East and discusses how his pictures demonstrate the complex human reality that exists on both sides of the divide.

Passow is a winner of four World Press Photo awards for his coverage of conflict in the Middle East. His work on ‘Shattered Dreams’ is also a personal journey through the emotional landscape of Israel, the country in which he was born.

“Judah Passow has an extraordinary ability to distil complex situations into powerfully loaded images that are deceptively simple to look at…his signature black and white technique has cut-glass clarity and beauty with a sensual quality that seduces the viewer to engage with even the grimmest reality.”Stephen Mayes, Secretary to the Jury, World Press Photo Awards

Judah Passow’s latest book ‘Shattered Dreams,’ will be on sale at the event and is published by Halban Books
