Photographer Gabriela Gleizer was born in Kfar Saba in 1990. Currently, she is pursuing her BFA degree in Photography at Bezalel, Academy of Arts and Design. Her interests lie in social matters through documentary photography.
Her series, “Through the stations” documents all the various passengers at multiple stations in Jerusalem as well as some other portraits in Benos Aires. “This is a part of an annual project which documents Jerusalem's Citizens, by a journey through the different stations of The Light Train of Jerusalem, passing through religious and non - religious Jewish and Arab neighborhoods. There are 23 stations, between them: Mount Herzl, Beit Hanina, Shivtei Yisrael, Pisgat Zeev, Kikar Denya, and more.” stated Gleizer.
The project, according to the photographer, “aims to explore and analyze the different cultures, religions and ethnic differences to which people belong and try to understand in this way the complexity and diversity of the society in Jerusalem” and all the different religious groups and backgrounds that make up the city. She is currently based in Jerusalem.
