“ In some parts of the world, windblown dust and silt blanket the land. This layer of fine, mineral-rich material is called loess Loess”. (National Geographic resource library). The word loess also comes from the German word for “Loose.”
A series of photographs made by a medium format camera between 2010 to 2018. I have decided to explore the Negev and Arava deserts which are divided between Israel, Palestine, and Jordan. Crossing and picturing landscapes, architecture, and objects that were left on the ground. Through personal, historical, and spiritual optics, I depicted these places as social-economical, and political dimensions in the Middle East are continuously in motion.
This is a journey of observation about the place I was born to, grew up in, fought for, and later left. It contains personal impressions through the geography of the land. This photographic series deals with concepts such as boundaries, control, identity, ideology, immigration, and faith.
