The photo is by Rina Castelnuovo. She’s the NY Times photographer covering Israel and its territories. I’m a big fan of her work because she is extraordinarily gifted and often finds an interesting and compelling way of telling the story. Her photos always contain several layers of information while being visually engaging. I suspect some details in her work probably slip by many NY Times readers, but their surface is so compelling that it doesn’t matter.
In the past, we’ve covered Ms. Castelnuovo’s work in a number of posts that are worth another look. Today, her own newspaper, the NY Times, decided to cover her work and included a 20 photo slide show that I strongly encourage you all to view.
