Michal Fattal | Photographic Communications, 2006
As a student at Hadassah College, I especially liked the homey feel and personal attention. Hadassah is very intimate, warm, very pleasant place. The professional and academic level is very high and the course of studies is very thorough. Students learn the theoretical background and also the professional aspects of the field. The College finds an excellent balance between the practical and the theoretical good. This means that the degree provides graduates with professional knowledge and not just empty rhetoric.
During my time at Hadassah, in about the second year of undergraduate studies, I suddenly realized that I was in the right place and it is the right profession for me. There is something in photography, and with photojournalism in particular, that engages all my senses. Today I look at the world differently because of that, and that is why I love the profession. Thanks to the profession, I have seen a lot of places and met a lot of people. Every day I'm in a different place and meet new people. It is an adventure.
I always loved to capture the moment, not to direct it, but to look at the world and frame it through my eyes . Today I work as a freelance photographer, mainly as a photojournalist. I work with the newspaper "Haaretz" and other newspapers and magazines abroad.
