A young woman and a peacock

Photographer's Name: 
Itamar Freed

A young girl cradles a peacock, posing after Sandro Botticelli's iconic painting, The birth of Venus, forming an axis between painting and reality - imagined narratives controlled by the artist, and the actual objects documented by the camera.   
For me, this represents the duality of the land of Israel, the conflict and divine love.

Festival Year:
