Gabriela Gleizer explores Jerusalem’s cultural and religious diversity in a series of portraits shot between stations of The Light Train
Words by Gabriela Gleizer
Through the Stations documents people, by a journey through the different stations of The Light Train in Jerusalem, which is one of the main transportation methods in the city, passing through religious and nonreligious Jewish and Arab neighborhoods.
The project 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, which includes Israeli-born citizens, immigrants, Jewish/Muslim/Christian people and more.

We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.
Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.
As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
