This year Pride Parade Haifa 2017 has been held among tight security.
The Photo Association launched the 2017 Haifa Photo Festival, “We are different...,” on March 7. The festival features 15 artists from 6 different countries and covers different photography genres, showcasing international cultures through photography and related media. PhotoStudio.org has long been a partner of the festival, supporting amateur participation. This year, seven amateur photographers will display work in the main exhibition. These artists will present photographs inspired by technology, the environment, society, cultural diversity, and more. The festival, which runs until March 11, includes a training program for emerging photographers, a lecture series, and performance photography.
