The exhibition tackles the discourse about “place” – a major concern and challenge in contemporary Israeli photography – while addressing key issues in contemporary photography, related to the modes of seeing and representation that this medium makes possible.

These spaces are depicted through a variety of photographic approaches ranging from direct photography, with some measure of digital processing (either overt or indiscernible), to photography that is the product of utter simulation (which at times mimics the look of direct, traditional photography, and at other times declares itself fictional and fantastic).
