During my Undergraduate years I volunteered in the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo in order to gain access to restricted areas behind the zoo cages and displays. It was my first body of work where I used a Large Format camera outside of the studio. It took me hours to photograph each location. I was sitting on the camera’s hard case trying to see the flipped image on the ground glass (an image is naturally upside down when appearing on a ground glass, just like our own vision before the brain's correction) and figure out how to mediate the spaces that not many eyes will see behind the scenes of the Zoo. I used a preexisting visual language and transformed these spaces into dungeon like places - dark tonality, bare concrete, metal bars, and quarantined spaces for medical purposes when put in the center of focus completely transformed the Zoo. It was a study of photography, and its capability of recording and transforming a reality in the process of mediation. It was an excersize in manipulation. My more recent work, which I started during my Masters Degree in photography, focused on the relation of our interpretation and expectations of reality when photography blends seamlessly with our vision of reality.
