TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - Tel Aviv's Camera Obscura photography school recently hosted an exhibition by graduates of Israel Pathways' third Masa study program, which showed Israel from their unique points of view.
The displays featured the fruits of the students' photographic labors, graphic and poster design, as well as elements of store design for trendy shops at south Tel Aviv's “little SoHo,” Levinsky street market.
The students studied a full semester, and majored in photography and graphic design, according to photography department director, Ariel Yanai.
“They came to us with no prior experience, and learned the basics of photography, Photoshop, video, graphic design printing and internet,” Yanai says, and lauds the graduates accomplishments.
Separately and as a group, the nine male and female students designed and built an internet site, and produced a printed catalog of their photographic works, Yanai says, noting that previous semesters included 12 to 15 students.
The program is co-managed by The Jewish Agency for Israel and the Israeli government.
