In some parts of the world, windblown dust and silt blanket the land. This layer of fine, mineral-rich land l is called loess. The word “loess” comes from the German word for “loose.”“

Loess” (2012-Ongoing) is a series of large scale color photographs framed in wooden boxes, made by a medium format camera . I have decided to explore the areas I grew up in – the Negev and Arava deserts which are divided between Israel, Palestine and Jordan. I present a very concrete mapping of historic borders, crossing and picturing landscapes, architecture and objects that were left on the ground. Through personal, historical and psychological optics, I depicted these spaces as social, economical and political dimensions in the Middle East are continuously in motion. The works create a link between photography and concepts such as memory, belief, control, ideology, identity, and perception.
