Wailing Wall 1994


Been scanning negatives for a new project. Taken at the wailing wall in 1994 when I was living in California. I come to realize how my vision is different, now that I live in Israel. Never paid much attention to what could be described as my documentary work- but there are few good ones...

Friday Night

 

Dinner at an Italian restaurant in one of the satalite cities of Haifa. The light was too bright the food ok but way overpriced. The service poor. What do you do in order to have a romantic dinner. I have been thinking about this blog as my visual journal nearing a two years mark. In this manner the progression of images and the opportunity to observe them in succession offers new opportunities. Technology + Content
Then I realized that Friday night experience related in a remarkable fashion to these line written few days earlier:
There is no There There

If you look at the roadside signs
And think about the people going to the beach
On a summer early morning
The only freshness of the day tries to
Wipe off the cobwebs of late Saturday night

I talk to you
I hear your voice
The spaces between the words
The roundness of the syllables

Around the corner there is a house
With its shutters closed
Like eyes that once could see and now are blind

We hear a rustle-
Behind the bushes a shadow
Give me your hand, I will take you there
Softly
