  • City in mountains

    This project is dedicated to the sacred city of Safed situated in the mountains of northern Galilee. While photographing its streets, walls, inhabitants, and surroundings for the last fifteen years, I can't refrain from perceiving it as one living and aging organism, a hundreds-year-old person with a philosophical mentality. I observe its character, its habits, its aging, and its wounds and scars as a part of an ongoing process. I feel as if I'm witnessing just several random, short moments in a long and mysterious life.
