The Promised Land

2012, Diplomarbeit

The Promised Land is a story about longing towards the idea of a place, where the hopes of a better life come true. The personal story of the main character of the work: Tali, who emigrated from Germany to Israel at the age of twenty on her own, is a starting point, that refers to the ambivalences, which may occur when the ideal image and reality’s facts collide. The photographs vary between documentary and symbolism.
