Hard and Stubborn Love

hl018

Hard and Stubborn Love is a photographic journey in the turbulent Israeli reality of the mid 2000′s. It took my nearly three years to come up with the first pictures that I was satisfied with, and three more to actually work on the project. This work is about our quest to find our identity and the need to belong. It was crucial  for me to find the right distance from my subject – staying close not to lose the sense of intimacy and familiarity on the one hand, while keeping a criticale perspective on the other.  This is my home and these are my people and we share the same future.
