    On the other hand, it’s spain!
    They have bull fighing and the bull race in Pamplona :)

  • Marga

    Castells is a tradition from Catalunya, any animal is killed… it’s beautiful, bull fighting is a shame.

  • gale

    Catalunya, is not Spain

    • Tarragona is a city in the south of Catalonia in the north-east of Spain

      • Yes, but Catalonia is a country with a culture and a tongue own. This is important for us.Bull fighting is a shame. Thanks Jeff.

  • Castellers is a tradition from the catalan community, Catalunya derives from the term “Land of Castles” having evolved from the term castlà, the ruler of a castle. This has deep roots!!

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”
