“Taking photos allows me to observe life in a photo frame, and each time I discover a new world within it,” says Israeli photographer Dikla Laor. “It is always a moment in a particular time period. This is what I try to immortalize in the photo.”
The hills on the Golan Heights are bathed in a deep green that is only found in this unique region. This is where Israel Today’s Anat Schneider met up with Dikla, an intelligent, sincere and modest woman who lives on a moshav (rural community) called Givat Yoav. Her pastoral garden is chirping with birds.
These green hills serve as the backdrop for her spectacular new photos of female characters from the Bible. Dikla spoke about the Bible, women and Israel, and for the first time, she displayed her works outside the borders of Israel in our magazine.
