Yaniv Waissa

Yaniv Waissa, Disintegration of a revived nation Yaniv Waissa is a young Israeli photographer working around memory and landscape. His series Disintegration of a Revived Nation deals with "the urban revolution, manifested in the massive construction of buildings, roads, bridges and all kinds of huge concrete structures," and "with the changing generations." His statement on the series contains no overt political messages and mentions nothing about the Arab-Israeli conflict, but I find that this work, which deals with rebuilding and replacing the old with the new in Israel, gains a layer of meaning by virtue of the political context in which it is being made.
