Interview: Ilia Yefimovich

Yefimovich Ilia‘s work is a research of the human conflict and it obsession with territory. She works both in Russia and Israel. She is building a puzzle that shows the territorial conflict of Israel and Palestine. She bases her work in photographing Portraits and Landscapes. In her work she uses the basics of photography working with a 4×5 camera that helps her to integrate with the historical part of the locations she works at.
