Liad Ronen's debut album

Liad was a singer, an artist, a sound person, a songwriter and a composer. In the process of releasing her first album, but sadly she did not manage to reach that goal. Two months before her 30th birthday, Liad was diagnosed with a rare blood disease called TTP - a disease that left her fighting to survive, and that ultimately took her life only one week later.

Liad left behind her voice, recorded. I was privileged to take part in the initiative of Smadar and Geva (Liad's brother and sister), by documenting the recording of the album, at Bardo Studios

Photoshoot at The Dead Sea

A fellow photographer (and a good friend of mine) and I drove to The Dead Sea (The Sea Of Salt) and had a wonderful photo shoot.  We left Tel Aviv at 6:00 AM and arrived to The Dead Sea at around 8:00 AM. The time spent on the road was definitely worth it - the moment you stop on the side of the road, your camera on your shoulder, walking closer and closer to the edge; AND then it’s just you and the sea. Your focus shifts from the ground to the horizon to the waves crashing into the shore.  It’s an amazing feeling of connected to the world.    


Here is some information - 
1. The surface and shores of the Dead Sea are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, making it Earth’s LOWEST elevation on land.
2. The Dead Sea is actually a salt lake, bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west.
3. The Dead Sea’s unusually high salt concentration (roughly 8.6 times saltier than the ocean), which means that people can easily float in it due to natural buoyancy.
4. It also means that it is a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish.
5. On the other hand,  The Dead Sea area has become a major center for health research and treatment because of the mineral content of the water, the very low content of pollens and other allergens in the atmosphere, the reduced ultraviolet component of solar radiation.

I used the Nikon D7000 for stills and video. And also the Hasselblad 500 c/m (which is a 6X6 square format). Here are some photos -
