Jewish Israeli photographer Natav Dvir created Eighteen, a series of photographs that attempts to bridge the gap between Jewish and Arab teenagers in Israel. He says his goal was to challenge ‘the widespread misconceptions and stereotypes of the people within my own country who I was brought up to consider more as foes rather than as allies’. Dvir says that while he grew up in Israel, he didn’t feel as though ‘he understood his Arab countrymen prior to the start of his project’. It’s a fascinating look at the differences and distinct similarities of teen culture.
