On Love and Other Landscapes (2011)
photography project, 91 images in sequence
First produced for Jerusalem Show, curated by Lara Khaldi & José A. Sanchez
This book is a film made in a format of a book, it doesn't exist as a film, the book is its original and only format.
The film/book follows a narrative of a failed love story, involving a woman who had recently abandoned the narrator and left him with the landscape photographs lacking his presence and the presence of the notorious Israeli built Wall in the West Bank, an absence which echoes the atmosphere conjured by these images.
This series emerged out of questions relating to the representation of the Wall. Depictions of this Wall have been used and consumed within the palestinian and global shared visual economy to such an extent that it lost its power as an image.
