Meticulously staged photography, a wealth of details and references. In a tradition similar to Jeff Wall, Nes composes densely charged photographic tableaus: scenes from the life of a soldier and from the everyday life of young (Mizrahim) men, whose bodies show beauty, passivity and vulnerability. In addition to its inscription in the visual cultural history of the west and of Israel, Nes is interested in the subversion of the ideal of male Zionist bodies through references to homosexually connoted images and to the Jews of Arab origins.
