River of three Crossings is a travelogue that evolves around the mythic, nomadic nature of landscape photography.
It is a symbolic tale forming an epic cinematic journey.
Each chapter explores psychological territories, using landscape as a stage on which to cast the themes of desire, identity and personal history whilst the spectator is encouraged to assemble clues and construct a personal narrative.
The first trilogy - Promise, marks the start of the journey and depicts waterfronts, mountains and beautiful woodlands symbolic of abundance and promises of love, relating to personal identities embedded in Israel’s consciousness.
The second - Interval, represents the passage between the promised and dreamed – transitory, nomadic spaces that hang between memory and being; documenting the split of time moving simultaneously towards the future and the past, yet seemingly suspended in the present.
The third and last series - Dream, depicts landscapes that once epitomised fantasy, now lie in rot and decay; here Israel highlights that we are unable to fix memories, instead we edit, redraft and rewrite them.
