As a photojournalist during the summer 2014 war in Gaza (Operation Protective Edge) I photographed both soldiers in the field and military funerals. Most of the photos were published in Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.
The photograph from Guy Elgranaty’s funeral was awarded Photograph of the year 2014, by Local Testimony annual press photo project.
This summer war was very personal for me. My photojournalist mission met with my young nephew who was on army duty in these same places. I photographed the Sisyphic Israeli reality of death, pain & heroism.
