Sigal's Jerusalem Photos
In the collection, major sites in Jerusalem are presented, consisting of many pictures that are linked together in layers. This collage technique, (inspired by artist David Hockney), breaks through the frame of the lonely picture and gives the sense of Jerusalem space is both an ancient and modern city. It contains buildings from the past along with modern architecture. Tradition and innovation exist side by side. This photographic technique, made from a collage of pictures placed on top of each other, also expresses the idea of the many layers of time being revealed in the old and new city side by side. In this series, Sigal also expressed creativity and imagination, designing some of the images. There is no attempt to accurately reconstruct the places, but in this work, there is an expression of the freedom of creation that connects to the building and renewal momentum in Jerusalem, along with maintaining the tradition and honoring Jerusalem's rich past.
