Roland Fischer: Tel Aviv: A Collective Portrait Hardback
by BJORN VEDDER
How should you portray a collective? Roland Fischer shows us in his latest large-format photo project. 1,000 students from Tel Aviv University agreed to take part and to be photographed by him.
The result is a multi-faceted collective portrait of young students in Israel and at the same time a series of fascinating individual portraits.
Roland Fischer's famous large-format collective portraits of various sections of Chinese society were exhibited at numerous international venues.
His latest work led him to Israel to Tel Aviv University.
He placed a total of 1,000 individual portraits of students side by side to create an overall composition which reveals both the individual and the collective.
This volume reproduces not only the "Israeli collective portrait", but also documents its creation.
Essays by Moshe Zuckermann, Bernhard Waldenfels and Bjorn Vedder as well as quotations from the interview film produced parallel to the photo project "A Normal Day On Rothschild Boulevard" round out the volume.
