Kobi's work is autobiographical in nature and investigates the "remembrance of things past” and the process of personal reminiscences and recollection. Empty landscapes, intimate encounters, touristic travelogues are all potential backdrops for an inside quest and reflection.
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

Staged images where I lead the viewer into a world of recollection, conflict and trapped emotion which I experienced as an adolescent growing up in a deeply conservative and traditional society. (Tel-Aviv, Israel).
