From Mili Avital to Avraham Burg, from Muhammad Bakri to Shlomo Ben Ami, from Batia Gur to Amos Oz, from Yitzhak Rabin to Ehud Barak: one hundred and fifty artists, singers, actors, politicians, writers, athletes, figures that are an integral part of Israeli life. They all stood in front of Vardi Kahana's camera. A beautiful photography book, putting together many extraordinary portraits, viewed from surprising angles.
