Dead Land

  • Photographer
    Sharon Tribelsky

The series “Dead Land” was taken on the shores of the dead sea (israel) where many sinkholes are created almost every day. The eria is very dangerous. There are thousands of small and big holes in the ground,filled with water or empty. The Dead Sea has lost a third of its surface area since 1960, receding by about one meter every year. there are now thousands of sinkholes all around the shores of the Dead Sea, i took this series with a drone using the first rays of the morning's light to announce the strong shapes and reach shades of grays creating this sad but powerful abstract “paintings”
