It is truly amazing how a story can be told with just a few photographs. When the images are that powerful, no words are even needed.
On August 29, 2014, The New York Times Magazine published a piece called “On the Ground in Israel and Gaza” about the recent outbreak of war. Normally I would not be drawn to this kind of article, but this one drew my attention right away because it was different than most. Instead of just a print story, this piece was a compilation of scenes that two photographers captured during the war that included some text in between.
When I look at the collection of photos that Paolo Pellegrin and Peter Van Agtmael captured, I feel like I am right in the middle of the chaos. The emotions that their subjects are portraying are so powerful that they make me feel a similar way. I also enjoyed the variety that publishing some photos in black and white and others in color created.
