|Born 1975. Photographer.Ronit has presented extensively in Israel and abroad, both solo and in group exhibitions.|
|My work explores the physicality and history of places and terrains through the things left behind. My engagement with those places is not an external one, but a circular motion that begins with the personal, shifts to the collective and then, returns to the self. In doing so, I consider the ways in which images resonate with memory, pain and belonging.
I act as an investigator in a crime scene, looking for clues into how the past has infiltrated into the present. I rummage the past collecting visual sources to help me make sense of the present. I work with my photos, my documentation of single moments that reveal tension and restrained violence. But I also utilize images from archives, maps and scanned postcards in order to (re)shape the subjects that intrigue me, conscious of the heritage of the imagery into which I am entering.
I work with people but photograph their absence.
