It is well-nigh impossible to say anything in this country, in a physical or virtual public space, without it being construed or misconstrued as a political statement.

How on earth, then, did an exhibition of photographs by three Israeli-Arab/ Palestinian photographers, at the Beit Hagefen Arab-Jewish Cultural Center in Haifa, manage to skirt around this particular interpretative minefield? The show is called “Journal View – A Journal Photography Exhibition” and comprises works by Berlin-based Gazan Ali Ali, as well as Galileans Isam Telhami and Akrm Drawshi. Curator Fadwa Naamna feels that really isn’t a problem.
