Creative photographer Noa Kastel was born in Israel and has grown up surrounded by the conflict, history and varied realities that combine to form daily life in Israel. Noa’s work focuses on these daily realities, creating conceptual documentary projects; one of which, Protected Selves, we are featuring here.

“These images are a quiet observation on a constantly burning, injured land. The collective Israeli traumatic events are an integral part of both self and public identities. These images present suburbs, roads, kibbutzim, temporary passersby. This is an injured landscape. One that is no stranger to trauma, the need to exist, the non-existence. A land that begs to be shielded, but in a constant thirst for trauma.”
