The Art & Times of DEBBIE HILL

Debbie Hill is a photojournalist and artist, living in Jerusalem, whose images explore and document the convergence of culture, religion, and politics in Israel and the West Bank.

She was born into a devout Christian Baptist home in the mountains of West Virginia in the United States in 1956. In 1978, Debbie travelled to Israel on a church sponsored tour and then returned to Israel in 1983 for an extended visit.  It was then that she began a photo essay that would change the course of her life. 

Debbie's professional photography career began in the early eighties after earning a Master's Degree in 1982 in Communication Arts, specializing in photojournalism, at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia.  In 1995, Debbie converted to Judaism and immediately immigrated to Israel. She lives in Jerusalem. 

Debbie is an independent photojournalist who has been widely published in major international magazines and newspapers, including, Time, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, Paris Match, the New York Times, International Herald Tribune, USA Today, Sunday Telegraph of London.
