  • Agency / Studio
    Beam Collective

During the last Covid19 quarantine in Israel we were forbidden to go more than 100 meters from our homes. Being an artist this limited me about what I could photograph and observe. I had to work with what I get. For this project I limited myself even more and choose a single distance every day - 10, 20, 30 ... 100 meters every day and photograph what I see, and write my thoughts about it on the photographs. The project is the mixed media - photographs and text I wrote on it.
