The Israelis: Portraits

In the course of the years that Micha Kirshner had worked for the written press, he had the privilege of photographing and writing columns on a permanent basis for various newspapers, mainly the Maariv daily newspaper and the Monitin monthly magazine.

The columns followed the Israeli public life. In the framework of these columns, Kirshner photographed and interviewed those people who we tend to refer to as figures from the worlds of culture, politics, the academia and laymen.

In general terms, the work had a distinct typological air to it, attempting to categorize what could be referred to as the ‘spirit of the place’.

The various columns spanned a period of approximately 20 years.

A substantial part of these works were presented for public review by means of museums and galleries, both in Israel and abroad.
