Yaakov Elad, photography


Elad, who specializes in photographing mountains and green landscape, chose to photograph the Herzlia beach, which is unfamiliar to him. The photographs, which were all taken in a small, 100 sq.m area on the Herzlia beach, reflect Elads process of discovery and his growing closer to the coast and the sea. At times the character and form of the photographs are almost abstract. Their inner movement, the freezing of time all these give this simple and everyday human activity a mythological and symbolic quality.
