Traveling and wandering sideroads and unpaved paths, Agassi photographs in and around suburban settlements which were once agricultural – and today are mostly bedroom communities, distant from urban centers. These are towns with village-like, seemingly isolated, atmospheres. In the photographs, the place is unidentified and it is marked by a sense of “foreignness” and lack of clarity. Through the lens of Agassi’s camera, the desire to go out into the open expanse and to get to know Israel’s environment is upturned, appearing as a goal that is not achieved.
