My photography is a journey in search of a sense of belonging to the country and to reality.

My political views, changing along the years, especially during my army service, have brought me to a feeling of disconnection from this country. A connection that as a child, I used to feel.

 

This difficulty and the feeling of dissociation, arising in relation to the Israeli reality and reality in general, have led me to search after this connection through photography.

It is a therapeutic process of healing this fracture. A process that occurs in the quiet place, where the sky and the earth meet. A process of finding an internal balance through the balance outside.

 

In my work I am trying to reclaim the landscape of my homeland, to establish a new reality, and to connect to it through the disconnection and the silence of the desert.
