Yaakov Israel’s “The Quest for the Man on the White Donkey” published by Schilt Publishing, is a road-trip journey about the social history of Israel.
While the background and context of this work is necessarily of a highly political nature, the path Israel follows is of a more mundane, personal, and poetically meditative tone, giving his images descriptive philosophical access to questions about land and history. - Winston Riley’s review on photoeye

“I wasn’t informed by anything but my personal history, experience and understanding of my country. I can say that in the last 10 years I bumped into many extremely nice and helpful people from all origins, nationalities and political backgrounds, these encounters with people and places are very much at the core of this project.” - Yaakov Israel (the entire interview on Lenscratch)
