    the face looks like the “baby” from Eraserhead!

  • As a Canberra artist the Skywhale is truly spectacular because it has made people in Canberra talk about art for the first time in what seems like years. Even those who hate it are now having discussions about what makes art what it is.
    It’s a truly beautiful thing. Thanks so much PP.

“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.”
