Photography was part of his documentary and research work. As a guide of dozens of desert tours, Alon photographed the groups and hikers he led in the wilderness paths. Man as an individual and as part of a group against the primal elements of nature. Alon’s scrutiny examined the work and culture of Kibbutz Beit Hashita as a partner and observer.
