ISRAËL - PALESTINE

My travel to Israel is the continuity of my work "Histoire(s) contemporaine(s)". There is no link

with the memory of Shoah and its conservation but a same thinking about territory.

The town and country planning is still my concern, and my searches are based on the news politic

landscapes and their impact on the population. How do we consider these places ? How are they

transformed - or rather - how do we transform them ? To slide towards which domain ?

The discovery of this country lead me to look for the tracks of past, imbricated in the marks of the

present : the built, the new modes of consumption. My deep approach is still working on the

« recomposition » of landscape. The idea, more and more precise in my opinion, is that the photograph without knowledge and contextualization, is a none-photograph. What is it ? What is it said ? I wanted to put in evidence this between photographs of Israël and those of Palestine.

Indeed, in Israël, we know exactly where we are. We can go by the streets.

In Palestine, as a « non-lieu » (Marc Augé), this is nowhere. No text, no indication. Sometimes, only the Wall. Like an abandonned none-place, Palestine searchs an identity. Its reason to live next to Israël.
