Micha Bar Am is without doubt one of the finest photographers in Israel, whose reputation has reached far beyond the borders of our country. They are no superlatives which adequately describe his talent, his creativity, his initiative and his imagination.

Micha Bar Am has succeeded in a difficult feat: combining eminence in the field of photojournalism — his work is familiar to anyone who reads the major papers of the world — and eminence in other fields of photography — his work has been shown in many museums and galleries.

When one talks of Micha Bar Am, there is great truth to the old adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
