<< ASPHALT 2002-2003, ISRAEL >>

This series of photographs are bound together to an artists book that provides a documentation of teenage Russian immigrants, who are living in Israel. This group of people are all deeply attached to the Russian culture. Although they are Israeli citizens they all continue to speak Russian and spend most of their time among other Russian immigrants.
For a period of two years I documented this group, observing there behavior and conduct among the Israel Society. This includes dress code, style and basic daily accessories, in addition I observed their body language and different symbolic rituals that are dominant amongst this group. I conducted the research through specific individuals that where chosen by me.
