Efrat Shvily: New Homes In Israel And The Occupied TerritoriesEfrat Shvily: New Homes In Israel And The Occupied Territories

Published by Witte de With Publishers.
Essays by Catherine David and Ariella Azoulay.

Anonymous deserted buildings have dominated the photographic work of Efrat Shvily since she began to frame Israel's architecture in her images in the early 1990s. The buildings, so disconnected from their surroundings, point to the problematic relationship between the Israelis and their land. Shvily's New Homes in Israel and the Occupied Territories is a series of black-and-white photographs of houses and neighborhoods, which sometimes seem more like models than real buildings. In her desolate photos, Shvily does not make it clear whether the buildings were once inhabited and are now deserted, currently inhabited, or soon to be occupied. The series arose in reaction to the large number of new settlements that were realized in Israel in the 1990s. Perhaps because of the speed of these new developments, combined with the fact that construction projects are used as a means to occupy territory, the people who live in these places seem estranged from the land that surrounds them--a state of being that Shvily captures in her photos.

Efrat Shvily: Palestinian Cabinet MinistersEfrat Shvily: Palestinian Cabinet Ministers

Published by Witte de With Publishers.
Photographs by Efrat Shvily.

Before the beginning of the Second Intifadah in 2000, Efrat Shvily, an Israeli-born photographer, started work on the series Palestinian Cabinet Ministers, portraits of the ministers of the Palestinian Authority. Due to the continuing escalation of the conflicts in the West Bank and the Occupied Territories, the series remains indefinitely incomplete. Palestinian Cabinet Ministers can be understood as a companion to Shvily's series New Homes in Israel and the Occupied Territories (also published this season by Witte de With), which examines the relation Israelis have with the territory they share with other people. But where the latter series questions Israel's love for the ground, the former questions Israel's capacity to respect other people living on that same ground.
