The rising of the light —Palestine & Israel, 2009


To reserve slide shows or print exhibits

For a slide show

Skip Schiel travels with his slide shows presenting them in person (a video based on his Gaza slide shows is in production and when completed can be purchased). Earning some of his production expenses thru fees and sales, he requests an honorarium of between $50 and $300 depending on who the sponsoring group is and what is requested. He asks for travel expenses and accommodation, which could be a bed in someone's home. Minimally, groups will little budget can pass the hat, collecting whatever the audience offers. He often donates a portion of the proceeds to some activist organization in Israel or Palestine, such as Rabbis for Human Rights, the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions, the Ramallah Friends School, and the Gaza Community Mental Health Program.
These digital slide shows usually last some 45 - 60 minutes, and at least 30 minutes of discussion helps. He can provide his own computer but requests a video projector and sound system. He will also need a screen and darkenable room. He would like to sell his photos and distribute free literature.

For a print exhibit

His exhibits can be scaled from a minimum of 5 prints (requiring some 2 running meters) up to 50 (requiring about 20 running meters). Framed photos are 8 by 10 inches, 11 by 14 inches or panoramics 6.5 by 13 inches, depending on the show. He requests payment for shipping costs, but, depending on the venue, hopes for a stipend to help cover costs of matting and framing. He expects the exhibit will be secured and insured. He would gladly share proceeds of any print sales with the sponsoring institution.


Skip Schiel and his shows are available for touring in the south and midwest of the United States from late September thru mid November 2010. Itinerary.

While there is a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.
