Eddie Gerald graduated from Hadassah college of Photography and Sam Spiegel Film school in Jerusalem.
Photography assignments have taken him to over one hundred countries focusing in editorial and large scale storytelling projects for corporate clients, NGOs and international organizations. His work has been exhibited and received numerous awards and citations and is featured in a stream of multi-language publications. Gerald has also covered several places he intends to keep secret.
Eddie is involved in facilitating documentary seminars and portfolio reviews and has been twice in a row jury member for Israel's premier photojournalism contest "Local Testimony" which is exhibited annually at the Eretz Israel Museum alongside the World Press international exhibition. Gerald also delivers photojournalism and documentary lectures at the Communication department of Hadassah Academic College in Jerusalem and is currently the photo editor of the Israeli edition of National Geographic magazine.
When not out on assignments he resides in Jerusalem and keeps on working on his new book to be published later on this year. Gerald is represented by the German photo agency Laif and his video footage is submitted exclusively to Gettyimages.
"Eddie Gerald often documents a location after the riot of an occurrence that took place, died down; after news reporters, covering the event, have left the scene. He does not always take part in the peak moments, but gathers the pieces of the events after everyone is gone. Then quietly, after all the upheaval, he remains alone to examine, to pick up the broken pieces and to visualize what had happened." Ora Krauss, Curator
