"The landscape is not really a landscape; there is nothing concrete in it that justifies photographing it, except for some minor human activity that has no rules, and no function. These photographs are dominated by a sense of stopping, watching, and waiting—actions that expose layers of a fragile and threatened human reality. They exude the sense of constant search for refuge, for a place you can come to, but cannot stay in."—Sharon Ya'ari
