Part of the series "Home"
This body of work titled “Home” is a reflection of my personal background. The landscapes are composited from the two countries that comprise my inherited, and experienced, identity: Israel and Canada. The bottom half of this image was photographed in Israel, the country I grew up in, while the sky was shot in Canada, the country I currently reside in. The project was influenced by a trip I took to Israel in the summer of 2013, A place I missed very much and hadn’t visited since I was 11 years old, To my surprise, although the environment and even the air made me feel like I was finally home, socially, I felt in some ways different from fellow Israelis. In Israel I was Canadian, and in Canada I was Israeli. After coming back to Canada, I realized that both countries, and neither, are my home. This project is the processing of my story. The landscapes are digitally manipulated to appear otherworldly, like a different planet, representing a place I am estranged from. In them I see a familiarity, a place that is so beautiful, that has recognizable features, but somewhere I feel alien.
