CuratorDorit Jordan Dotan was born in 1961, in Haifa, Israel. She lives and work in evanston, IL. Since 1998, she has run an independent art studio, providing photography, graphic design and related services. Most of her clients have been non-profit Israeli-Palestinian organizations which are active in the areas of peace, co-existence, women’s issues and human rights.
As a long-time participant in many social change activities, her role as a documentary photographer has brought her photographs and designs to the wider Israeli public. She has often served voluntarily as in-house photographer for many activist organizations. Her photographs have been published in Israeli online news outlets and have been used for publications, brochures, and posters of non-governmental organizations all over Israel. She has documented water scarcity in the Territories, and continues to photograph events in Israel in the hope of contributing to social and environmental change.
During the Gulf War in 1991, she began documenting the events of Israeli-Palestinian activist groups. Her short docu-drama, “People in Black” was screened at both the Haifa International Film Festival and the Jerusalem Cinemateque.
