Belief is still one of the basic, most significant and profound factors defining and shaping individuals and societies alike. Regardless of specific religious or political affinities, belief can provide a sense of community, belonging, safety and understanding, yet it might also provoke hatred, separation and aggressiveness.


The photographer depicts Israel in the light of the long and complex history of its social and ethnic pluralities. Holy sites situated throughout Israel make the (physically) small country very important for Jews, Christians, Muslims and many other religious groups.

Fascinated by the extreme situations people reach, in the pursuit and in defense of their beliefs, Dvir explores the various ways of how cultural communities practice their beliefs, the places their beliefstake them to and the scenes in which they take part.


Dvir’s intention was not simply to document the specific event that is photographed. The photo project “Belief” promotes self-reflection, since the viewers can relate to the images on a more universal level and contemplate the power of belief and its place in their own world.

The exhibition “Belief” is supported by the Municipalities of Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos.
