This year’s International Photography Festival places the accent on the person behind the camera.

If your idea of a photography-based arts event is confined to making sure the prints are big enough, good enough and appropriately positioned, the forthcoming third annual International Photography Festival in Rishon Lezion should make you think again.

The statistics alone should make the public sit up and take note. From April 5 to 19, the Carmel Wineries in Rishon Lezion will house 1,000 works created by 265 photographers from Israel and abroad, divided among 25 individual exhibitions in 15 display halls. Judging by the initial two editions of the festival, which attracted around 30,000 visitors, the wineries bash should be well-attended.
