Disposable Eyes

Publication accompanying the exhibition

This book unites the two photo projects shown at the exhibition.

Read from one end, it introduces the Promised Land project by Suzanna Lauterbach, who distributed disposable cameras to randomly selected people in Israel and asked them to take photos of subjects they saw as embodying the Promised Land. Reading the book from the other end, one encounters the friendships that resulted from the Pen Pal project by Eytan Shouker and Eldad Cidor, who convinced their Palestinian and Israeli participants to take a chance on a friendship with the presumed “enemy.”
