Last month the photo story “City of War”, about the life in Sderot during the last war was shown in the New York Envisioning Justice exhibit .
In an Interview for Moment Magazine Curator Deborah Plum stated:
“For instance, Gil Lavi [an internationally renowned photographer] did a series of photos in Sderot. What drew me to those photos was that it was about Sderot. Not about Sderot being bombed or about the State not taking care of the town, but about the place itself. It showed Russian immigrants living there and happy to be there. It wasn’t about the statistics. I loved those photos. I think it was my inspiration for the whole show.”
