As a life-long Nikon user, it's an honour to be part of this prestigious photo contest and to be able to share stories and images from an often misrepresented and misunderstood part of the world with a wider audience.
These portraits were taken on a 10-day, self-funded photographic trip to Israel & Palestine. Using well-connected local fixers I shot in locations and with communities which would have otherwise been almost impossible to gain access to. From the outset, my goal was to capture a series of photos which showed an alternative angle to the region, far away from the traditional imagery found in the news and travel media.
