The IsraeliJazz project was started by the French photographer Raphael Perez in 2018, developed in 2020 and was launched in October 2022.
The project presents Israeli jazz as it is today and how it started in the 1930s. It is a multimedia project that will combine a printed book, events, and a series of exhibitions with a website and social networks.
The goal of the project is to explain how jazz started in Israel and how this country became a major player in the jazz arena with several hundreds of professional musicians performing globally.
The work has been supported by research made by Raphael Perez in cooperation with musicology specialists from various countries and his own photographic works.
