The mineral shores of the Dead Sea (the lowest part of the planet) are asleep. Whispers seem the only remains of the sea, already dead by its name. The thick waters evaporate, muffled by the global heat and by the predators who have even stolen its salt and the fresh waters of the Jordan river which once fed it. The fate of this ghostly sea is the perfect metaphor of a wider pending disaster. The geopolitical territory that surrounds it seems to exist only by default, haunted by surveillance and resentment, deploying watchtowers, dust clouds and other security devices.
This series is part of “Fragiles”, a collective project of Tendance Floue with the support of Fujifilm.
