Women Wage Peace

The Women Wage Peace movement started in the summer of 2014 during a period of violence between Israel and the Palestinians, marked by the military operation "Tzuk Eitan."

On October 4, 2017, an inspiring collaboration between Jewish and Arab women took shape through the "March of Hope" project. Thousands of women started on a journey from the northern regions of Israel to Jerusalem, united by a common call for peace. This call reached its zenith on October 19th, with a march that included at least 4,000 participants, with half of them being Palestinian and the other half Israeli by the northern Dead Sea.

I had the incredible opportunity to walk in this march for peace, and it remains one of the most remarkable experiences of my life. I was there with my camera, dressed in white, and did my best to protect it from the desert sand. Unfortunately, my memory card sustained some damage, resulting in the loss of all the photos from the march. Yet, I've come to realize that some memories are simply meant to reside in our minds. Thankfully, I did manage to save a few photographs I took in Israël.

Photographing for an organization like Women Wage Peace is so inspiring to me, and I consider it my ultimate goal to one day work as a full-time photographer for such impactful organizations.
