“Treasures of the past are found in every home: in photo albums, documents, and mementos... You are the curator of your own museum, your life,” said Nirit Shalev-Khalifa, Director of Israel Revealed to the Eye.
Photographs are authentic educational tools and entry points for many of the best stories. Israel Revealed to the Eye is a project that travels to different communities around the country to collect and document personal photos of Israel – land, people, and history. Each photo is a trove of stories that funnel into a much greater story about collective history, memory, values, and narratives.
Our memories are filled with images and snapshots of our lives. Some photos we store in shoeboxes and others in a digital cloud.
