The peace between Israel and Jordan has been given visual expression in an exhibit that opened recently in Tel Aviv, featuring the work of Jordanian and Israeli photographers.

The exhibit at the Eretz Yisrael Museum, “Camera With No Boundaries,” displayed the work of five photographers, two Jordanian and three Israeli, who captured on film their impressions of each other’s countries.

One of the Jordanian photographers told Israel Radio that he had focused on the agricultural settlements along the Jordan River, “because I have always wanted to see the region from the other side of the border.”

Jordanian Mihiran Kizirian focused on the Mediterranean coast.

“I wanted to come take pictures of people in Tel Aviv,” Kizirian said.
