Today we highlight some of the amazing photographs published by Mondoweiss in 2015, showing major news events as well as daily life in Israel/Palestine. Some shots portray victories, some the depths of despair or fury, and others simply the human moments of family and work life.
We are proud to provide a channel by which these vital images reach so many people. We hope that those who understand the realities of Palestinian life may be strengthened in their convictions—and their ability to change minds—by the ongoing visual documentation of oppression.
More than that, we believe that those who have not yet focused on this critical world issue, or who have not yet freed themselves from the one-sided stories provided in the mainstream media, can be shocked into new understanding by powerful images.
Look at the astonishing array of photos in the slide show below. And that’s just a small sample of what Mondoweiss has published in 2015! The world needs to see these images, and so many more. Please contribute today so that Mondoweiss can continue to share the Images That Power Justice. With a week to go toward the goal of $90,000, we are on track to achieve it!
Traditionally, over half our December gifts are in the last two days of the month–but there’s no need to wait. Your gift today will help unlock the remarkable $50,000 Challenge Fund that can move our work to the next level.
We are grateful to the gifted journalists and photographers who have captured these moments and share them through Mondoweiss. Read on to see the names of those whose photographs make Mondoweiss more persuasive every day.
