    What is it like covering war in your own backyard? The New York Times interviewed the Israeli photojournalist Uriel Sinai about his experience photographing his country’s side of the recent conflict, as seen here in this Aug. 2 image of an Israeli tank firing artillery toward the Gaza strip.

    Q. Because of your work in both Israel and the West Bank you probably have closer contact with a wider range of Palestinians and Israeli Arabs than most Israelis. Do you get to see both sides in a way many Israelis don’t?

    A. I have many Palestinian photographer friends and we work shoulder to shoulder. You do understand the suffering better than most Israelis and you understand what’s happening on the other side. This whole situation is terrible. Covering this conflict is something that feels like it’s never going to end. You see the suffering on both sides and at a certain point you feel you have had enough.

    The Times also spoke with Palestinian photographer Wissam Nassar, who was born and raised in Gaza. Read more of their interviews on Lens. The blog has also recently featured interviews with photographers Tyler Hicks and Sergey Ponomarev and their experiences shooting in the Gaza Strip.

    Reportage photographer Uriel Sinai recently profiled Israel’s only wildlife hospital, in Ramat Gan. The hospital treats around 2,000 animals annually, and one day this spring had around 170 of them in hospitalization, from hedgehogs to owls to tigers.

    Israelis honored their national Holocaust Remembrance Day on Monday in many ways, from public ceremonies to lowered flags to a nationwide moment of reflection, in which sirens wailed and drivers stepped from their cars and bowed their heads. For the country’s remaining 200,000 Holocaust survivors, the events of the 70 years ago are probably never far from mind, especially for Auschwitz prisoners like Leo Luster, above, who was tattooed by his captors with the ID #B11647. Mr. Luster was one of dozens of men and women photographed by Getty Images photographer Uriel Sinai for his project, “Numbered,” about the tattoos and their legacy. Mr. Sinai also filmed a documentary about the subject, which highlighted the phenomenon of the survivors’ children and grandchildren getting their own tattoos as personal tribute.

    In the new documentary, “Numbered,” Getty photographer Uriel Sinai, together with Dana Doron, explores a subtle legacy of Auschwitz: the tattooed serial numbers borne on the arms and chests of its survivors. The movie will have its New York premiere on January 20th as part of the New York Jewish Film Festival at Lincoln Center. You can watch a trailer for the movie here:

    Previously, Uriel had photographed dozens of Auschwitz survivors and their tattoos for a portrait series of the same name. An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps, including Leo Luster, above, whom Uriel photographed in 2009.
