Photographer's Note

This woman is the oldest in the village I document. She had traditional tattoos and a big nose ring (In traditional societies, the women's Jewelery is the safe). She had agreed to be photographed, but covered her face, and I got this frame which shows a lot more about the village than a plain portrait would have shown.

"While walking along a bumpy, open-field, you sight an obstacle, a barrier and soon you
come upon a wire fence several meters high. There is no sign that points to the village
nor is there a road which leads into the village. Once you have navigated the obstacles you are staring at corrugated zinc, metal shacks and tents used as houses in the middle of the Negev Desert . There are 45 such villages with 76,000 citizens, living in what is known as an 搖nrecognized villages.
