- Nine top winners and 27 finalists from 15 countries won awards in the 2012 LensCulture Exposure Awards for the best in global photography and multimedia. See examples of each, here, along with direct links to each winner’s website.
- Natan Dvir, an Israeli Jewish man, photographed and talked with 18-year-old men and women who are part of the minority Arab population that continues to live within a country that is largely defined by opposing religious beliefs.
- Israeli photographer Natan Dvir is “fascinated and sometimes frightened by the extreme situations people reach in the pursuit and defense of their beliefs. Regardless of specific religious or political affinities, belief can provide a sense of community, belonging, safety, and understanding, yet might also provoke hatred, separation and aggression.”
