Unquestioned

I am interested in imagery that shows human engagement with nature and urban environment. I photograph the landscape of Israel, a new country that has hastily urbanized within a span of a century. I photograph in places or environments infused by collective dreams of an aspired reality, yet baring traces of a temporary or transitory reality, sense of deterioration and human signs of atrophy. Working in large format, I construct and stage each frame, often applying technical processes in post-production as a means to accentuate a state where symbols replace what they represent.
