City of Gold Series

Just this once, I'm going to bend what I consider to be a very important rule that artists should never try to tell people what their art is about. So here is what this series is about:

Also shot in the old Jerusalem train station with Beth, this series explores the relationship of femininity with religion and cultural identity. By shooting this series in a rundown building with the golden late afternoon light, I was also seeking to contrast the two major stereotypes of Jerusalem - City of Gold and war zone - neither of which is really accurate and neither of which can be understood without the other.
