I was commissioned by an Israeli magazine to do a series of photographs about poverty and, as the editor explained it to me: we are looking for something different from the usual picture of someone standing in front of an empty fridge. Usually when you take pictures of poor people you don’t ask their permission to take their picture but you try to hide their identity.These portraits are trying to ask who are these people and what happen to them.They are also about the relationships between photographers and their subjects, and the ethics of doing such work.
