Faith # 1, tryptich, 2016. Michael in Qum'ran, Father Issa in Wadi Qelt and Ramadan in Nebi Musa, Judean desert.

Digital c-type prints from medium format film.

Stills series exhibited alongside the moving image installation Faith.

In triptych form, Faith presents a close observation of the morning prayers of an Orthodox Jew (Michael Cohen, Breslav tradition), a Greek Orthodox Christian (Father Issa Taljieh, Church of Nativity) and a Sunni Muslim (Feras Kazaz, Koran reader at Al Aqsa Mosque). Removed from the contested zones that today make up Jerusalem, the subjects are relocated to sites of the Judean desert resonant with each of their traditions: the Qumran Canyon (site of the discovery of the Jewish Dead Sea scrolls), Wadi Qelt (setting of early Christian retreat caves) and Nebi Musa (pilgrimage route to Mecca).
