Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War. Half a century has passed since Israel gained control of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Ahead of that date, I was commissioned to photograph a story by Dan Ephron for a special issue of The Washington Post Outlook Section which was published yesterday.
On a personal level, I’m thrilled and proud to see my photo cover most of the section’s front page and more photos featured on the following pages of the story, alongside photos by Linda Davidson, which covered the Palestinian side of the story, and a powerful image by Oded Balilty.
I’d like to thank Outlook editor Adam B. Kushner and especially Outlook photo editor Chloe Coleman for trusting me with this and for her guidance and support.
