There are artists who feel the need to constantly put themselves out there. Irrespective of the merits of their work, they make sure they maintain a high public profile and are willing to do practically anything to get their column inches or online splash. And there are the likes of Micha Bar-Am.Bar-Am tends to the more unassuming side of publicity-seeking endeavor, but his oeuvre speaks for itself. Now 87, he has accumulated an enormous cornucopia of work over the last six-plus decades, including creating what is viewed as something akin to a definitive photographic coverage of the Yom Kippur War. The latter was last marked with an expansive layout of images at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2013, on the 40th anniversary of the war.
