Canadian photo-essayist Brant Slomovic examines the stories of lone soldiers through portraits and a survey of Israel’s landscape.


cracks in everything

There is a group of non-Israeli young men and women who come from countries around the world to volunteer in the Israeli military. The price of admission into Israeli society is this service. They are called lone soldiers. Canadian photo-essayist Brant Slomovic examines their stories through portraits and a survey of Israel’s landscape. He asks where they came from, who they are, and why they sought out Israel as their home.

Brant Slomovic is a Canadian photo essayist based in Toronto, with a background as an emergency medicine physician. His experience as a doctor working on the front lines instills in him a unique perspective on narrative and the human condition. His passion for storytelling stems from an awareness and sensitivity to people in times of need. What underlies his approach to work and artistic expression is a viewpoint that considers every person through a lens of commonality and connection.

Sara Angel is the Founder and Executive Director of the Art Canada Institute/Institut de l’art canadien, a non-profit organization based at the University of Toronto that is dedicated to the documentation and promotion of Canadian art history. She holds a PhD in art history and is a specialist in Nazi-era art restitution. Angel is also an arts educator and one of the country’s leading visual arts journalists.
