Capturing Journalism in the Moment: Day and Night at Haaretz

A special edition of Haaretz's Photo Blog celebrating the newspaper's 100th anniversary

The newspaper lands on your doorstep, like a declaration that a new day has arrived. It hits the ground with an assertive strike as it lands.

I remove the rubber band, read the front page, leaf through the paper towards the Gallery section. I glance at the articles and photos by colleagues, translated articles, sports, culture, and back to the news. As unconsciously as brushing my teeth and washing my face, the paper has landed on my doorstep for almost 30 years, and for almost 20 years I've been part of its editorial staff. Much has changed in that time – in effect the entire country has changed its shape – and the newspaper has changed formats as well. An analog world has expanded and become digital.
