ABOUT THIS SERIES

This body of work titled Home is a reflection of my personal background. The landscapes are composited from the two countries that comprise my inherited, and experienced, identity: Israel and Canada. The bottom half of this image was photographed in Israel, the country I grew up in, while the sky was shot in Canada, the country I currently reside in. The project was influenced by a trip I took to Israel in the summer of 2013, a place I missed very much and hadn’t visited since I was 11 years old. To my surprise, although the environment and even the air made me feel like I was finally home, socially, I felt in some ways different from fellow Israelis. In Israel I was Canadian, and in Canada I was Israeli. After coming back to Canada, I realized that both countries, and neither, are my home. This project is the processing of my story. The landscapes are digitally manipulated to appear otherworldly, like a different planet, representing a place I am estranged from. In them I see a familiarity, a place that is so beautiful, that has recognizable features, but somewhere I feel alien.

About Alice Zilberberg

Zilberberg merges traditional photography and computer illustration, creating images that bridge the platforms of photography and painting. Her work marries reality and fantasy, echoing elements of surrealism and baroque art. Using photo-manipulation metaphorically, her images explore themes such as female power, the natural environment, personal identity, and the human condition.
