When you think about landscape photography, the first associations that come up are usually endless horizons, spectacular red sunset, mountains, glories or milky water flowing softly. But like humans, nature also has moments when he would rather not be seen. Rough moments attest to the tiredness of the landscape from the pretense that everything is beautiful. Moments of the end of the day, of cumulative erosion of the landscape and of the body of the artist after a long walk in his wake.
In Geva's new series of photographs, which will be on January 4 at the Ephrat Gallery in Tel Aviv, the artist has chosen to focus on the moments when he and nature are tired, but still there, one with the other, supporting each other.
According to Geva, "Only when you are close to someone and are intimate with him does he allow himself to reveal to you his darker sides, the moments when all the masks fall off, and focus on those intimate moments that nature has agreed to remove from his masks. Tired of dealing with the continuous human and weather effects, rocks worn out from thousands of years of coping with water and the wind, opposite the feet of sore feet, muscles that burn with pain after hours and days of walking with a lot of equipment on the back. The landscape tells me about his life "
