Lifeguard Towers 2002

Gaza Tel Aviv

photo series "On The Way to Efrat" shows the deformation of the landscape of a militarized and colonialistically operating state. Tunnels and detours brutally fragment the land. The aim is to keep the Jewish and Arab population as far apart as possible - intended as a protective measure for the former, without consideration for the needs of the latter.
With "Lifeguard Towers", taken on deserted beaches in Tel Aviv and Gaza, Raz shows the only border of the state that is not at the disposition of negotiations and wars: the sea, which simultaneously opens up a perspective of desire and hope.
