After years of relative calm, tensions between Palestinians and Israelis has escalated in recent days through a series of provocations that have been answered with escalating violence. On the ground, photojournalists have been photographing scenes of chaos, destruction, and heartbreak under the incredibly difficult conditions.
On this episode of the PhotoShelter podcast, Vision Slightly Blurred, Sarah and Allen discuss how on-the-ground reporting helps bring clarity to the conflict.
Also on the show: Stephen Voss photographs the first 100 days of the Biden presidency for Politico, photographer and former public school teacher Meryl Meisler publishes a new book about Bushwick Era Disco, and did you know you can make a full-time living as an astrophotographer?
