The "Dying Beauty" Photography Exhibition
Asaf Amran and fellow photographers exhibiting with him in this
impressive and unique exhibition, made a kind of escape (Escapism)
towards both imaginary and reality, dived into the depths and touched the
very soul of the Dead Sea.
A beauty that is dying - disappearing…
Their uncompromising professional ability, which included many trips to
the area, experimenting with several types of cameras and different
photography techniques, was combined with love, sensitivity and, above
all, caring for the future of the Dead Sea.
As a curator, the selection of the works was not easy at all, on the one hand
to select from the many and good photographs the best and most suitable
ones, and on the other to be careful in preserving the main message for all
those anxious about the beauty and future of the Dead Sea.
Personally, I am very happy about the ongoing relationship between the
members of the Etgarim Association and myself, for their blessed social
work, and no less than that, I was happy about the enthusiastic connection
between Assaf and his friends, and the members of the Association.
From the Englishman William Turner, who during his biblical tours painted
the Dead Sea, to Spencer Tunick, who was known mainly for his works
"Naked World" and chose to photograph at the Dead Sea as well, to Asaf
Amran and his friends, many have immortalized its unique and mysterious,
beautiful and painful landscapes.
I am sure that you also join me in praying, that we will be able to leave the
Dead Sea to future generations as a Sea and not as a ruin !!!
