Actualities in Black & Orange
  Book Cover
  Published in January, 2006, Actualities in Black & Orange is Menachem Kuchar's long overdue first book. It illustrates the people in and behind the "Orange" Campaign in Israel during 2005.

The work represents an inquiry into contemporary Israeli life. Using his camera precisely and lucidly to record the anti-"Disengagement" movement, Menachem weaves a photographic narrative of what was happening in the background to the events being played out on the national stage. Stunningly laid out and finely printed, the book presents more than forty timely photographs from the Actualities in Black & Orange collection, fifteen photographs from the Bus Stop collection as well as colour photographs taken in Gush Katif.

Menachem's unique eye for both the monumental and the mundane reveals a vision of universal interest rooted in the everyday, yet always looking beyond. He focuses on the subtleties of human interaction to make eloquent images.

Menachem has mastered his medium. His work shows a deep love and compassionate understanding of his country, its people, their life, their problems and their needs.

Read reviews of the book.

The book is available in hardcover cloth binding, with a dust jacket, as well as a limited edition (180 copies), signed and numbered collectors' edition.

You can order the book here on this site or at your favourite book shop.
