The best story tellers are the testimonies we bear. Vulnerability, transparency, sincerity allow us to become a true community to learn from each other and be there for one another.  In the photography series A Form of View by Yoav Friedlander the artist takes us on a journey to season our lives with inspiration and reflection. “I was born in Jerusalem and spent most of my life in my hometown town of Maale Adummim. Between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, on a limestone hill at the edge of the Judean mountains my perception of the world got its shape. After 18 years of preparations I’ve joined the army for a mandatory service of 3 years. I’ve started my service as a paratrooper and fulfilled my childhood dream of following my father’s footsteps. Photography, that by then became more than a hobby, was interrupted by the army service. Therefore I had to shift from combat position to an administrative one that allowed me to follow my heart…..Photography altered the way I have experienced reality by providing me with a similar experience approximate to reality that is yet different. What exists is different from how it is mapped in a photograph. Many of our understandings of reality and our relation to objects, people and landscapes are being described by photographs and have never being experienced by us in person. Photography at times diffused itself so well into consciousness that we find ourselves considering what is real to be different from how it should be according to its own image. Since the invention of the photograph, reality gradually became augmented by its own reflection. I am focusing my work at that point of friction.”

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
