    Never thought of myself as a tapestry guy, but I’m salivating over these. His prints aren’t half bad either:

  • Oh Wow ! The first few make me imagine exploring underwater worlds and reef like kingdoms and then on to lush jungly ( could be a word) realms . Incredible craftsmanship can I get one on a jacket?

“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.”
