Between Zones

Through February 18, 2011

Between Zones is composed of two bodies of work by the Israeli photographer- "Runaways" and "Sleepers." Seemingly disconnected, both series work to capture an interim, a moment of innocence, a moment of flux. Runaways captures female Israeli soldiers on airstrips before their mandatory service, and Sleepers youths of 16-20 fast asleep.

More engaging perhaps for the proximity of the figure is the Sleeper series. The portraits of youths caught between childhood and adulthood are both classical and unusual- distance and pose play a role in each. Faces fill the frames without pretense but since sleeping our role as a viewer balances between caretaker and voyeur. The works are warmly lit and convincingly genuine.

New Yorker Review.
