This series of compelling night images of the land and skies of Israel offers the viewer mystical points of entry and departure. The world depicted in "Celestial Nights" is composed of a delicately constructed order in which earth and the heavens mirror each other. Folbergís photographs describe places where the spiritual is at once near, imprinted in the forms of the arid landscapes, and far away in the recesses of space. Neil Folberg, a former student and colleague of Ansel Adams, is renowned for landscapes and images of ìbuilt environments.î Born in San Francisco and raised in the Mid-west, Folberg has lived in Jerusalem since 1976. Timothy Ferris is the bestselling author of "Coming of Age in the Milky Way." ìThe genius of these images is not in the revelation of any new truth, but in the expression of unsolvable equations. We are shown both realms of the visible universe, Earth and sky.î--"Astronomy," June 2002
