From the moment the Israeli state has been declared it has been in a state of spatial planning – Its   landscapes are changing daily,  solid concrete molds are taking over new territories and by doing so stating a new reality on the ground.
The city I was born and raised in, Ofakim, is been crucially shifting  in front of my eyes. Like more towns in Israel, Ofakim has double it’s size in the last decade; houses and new neighbourhoods are been built and my childhood’s landscape has changed. With the aid of my camera I  decode the late and early history of the town I grew up in, in an attempt to understand the future of the place.
