    This was absolutely mesmerizing. 

  • I was touched by this

  • lepetitfaon

    I absolutely loved this. Feel it is accurate to describe the ownership of sound belonging to those who have access to it, though find it strange this never occurred to me before, especially considering I work with disabled children. I also never thought of the ramifications for the people who have limited access to sound as a result of this, which I would not have considered if not for this piece (eg asking a child who cannot hear not to drag its feet because its rude, as though the child would understand why that particular sound is offensive). This does exactly what good art should do, directs you to the questions the artist is posing and forces you to think about it, wonderful work!

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Click here to see our previous post of Dror’s work. More images from “15/20” below.
