In 2014 I documented everyday life in Israel within a single month. I learnt that life there was more complicated than media gives it credit. Many Israelis live under poverty, yet these people unite showing bonds of friendship not seen in many western countries. However there's an underlying hatred that permeates their lives, a weariness that their lives could be snatched away from rocket attacks, stabbings or hit and runs that permeate the national news. It's easy for the West to judge the Israelis as overly zealous and blood thirsty, in some ways maybe those views are right, but I saw a much more multifaceted side to a troubled people, which I hope you too can glimpse within these images.
