IPHOTOCENTRAL reviewing Miki Kratsman at Parisphoto 2017

 From the article:

“…At just about every fair I attend I hear complaints from somebody about the lack of images relating to the big, bad world out there. Well, there was work on offer on this year. The 2nd of November, a week before Paris Photo opened, marked the centenary of The Balfour Declaration. Tel Aviv-based Chelouche Gallery presented a solo show with the Israeli artist Miki Kratsman, and it cropped up in a lot of conversations I had at the fair.
Kratsman has photographed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for 33 years and has just published a new book, “The Resolution of The Suspect” which brings together five separate projects that range across that time frame. Kratsman told me. “I’m a photographer and an activist. These images are all from my project “Targeted Killings”. The images were taken on my way to work at The Bezalil Academy of Arts or from my office window. I used a special long-range lens that the Israeli army uses. The project is part political, part about the transformative power of that lens. These are innocent people going about their business but the lens turns them into suspects, potential targets. You will notice that the prints have two folds. That’s how photographs and maps are folded in the Israeli army, to be checked by a technician, for targets. It was a brave move by the gallery to show this work at a fair like this but we have sold and there is a lot of interest from curators.”
