Description - Sunburn by Daniel Tchetchik
Sunburn explores the relationship between the photographer and his country, Israel, through the narrative of heat. It is a regional story that also aims to raise awareness and questions regarding global warming across the globe. Photographing Israel in the months leading up to the 2008 war in Gaza, during the war and in the months after, Tchetchik conveys the often contradictory effects of the Middle Eastern climate on the physical and metaphysical landscape - a sun that warms, nurtures and comforts, burns, strikes and scars.
