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.
