Yoav Horesh was selected for the juried exhibition “Nostalgia” at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont. The selected photograph above is from the series “Intransition.” About this work, Horesh writes, “‘Intransition’ is a series of photographs that concern time/change and how these elements are rendered photographically. As much as the work is derived from my personal experiences, collective history/memory and serves as a visual diary, it also challenges the notion that photographs ‘capture the moment’ and could serve as an historical fact. From a Spanish school that still carries its physical history from when it was used as a prison, to fields where prisoners’ barracks once stood in a concentration camp in Germany, photography is not limited as a record of the present but also is a fusion of the past and possible future.”
