UNTITLED. The work is part of a photography project of the urban environment in Ashdod, my hometown in Israel. I started with a photo of the city where the daily routine of my life takes place. I sought to learn about myself through the place that contains me as a private subject or as part of the local society that builds its environment and thus changes the natural landscape.
In time, the photography space limitation opened up to wherever I went - Ashdod became everywhere / nowhere - a microcosm that casts a shadow over the rule.
I took the specific photo during a visit to the Space Museum in Moscow.
