"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


What does a Palestinian look like? What does an Israeli look like?

Men and Women, Israelis and Palestinians, agreed to cry, laugh, shout, and make faces in front of the photographers lens. Their portraits were posted face-to-face, in huge formats, on both sides of the security fence / separation barrier and in several cities.

A necessary demonstration, through images, that art and laughter can challenge stereotypes.

I finally found a good video collage on this "illegal" photography installation on the Wall of Shame by french artists JR and Marco. I was at their Vernissage at Artcurial earlier in June, where the artists were signing their book and showing the video installation.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
