Idan said: “LAND is a photographic project. A tribute to the beauty of the land known as Israel and Palestine.
Through the photos I wish to express a message of unity and peace, highlighting the poetry of the natural world that underlies a long history of man-made conflicts.
The project is an invitation to widen our consciousness and realize that in spite of our cultural differences we all share the same nature. We don’t own the Land, we are part of it – as fruits are part of a tree.
Getting closer to nature reminds us of our true nature. Looking into the landscape we can observe that there are no separations, no borders, everything is part of a whole and therefore there is a sense of harmony and beauty.
I am fully committed to this project. I see it as my mission to bring an effective message of unity and peace through my visual art. Powerful, beautiful images seen in this conceptual context can inspire people to recognize new possibilities and to join this holistic vision.
Especially now, in these crucial moments of the ongoing conflict, I believe this message needs to be heard.”
