Valentine Vermeil: Ba-Bel (East and West Jerusalem) 

“Everyday People” is about the country as a whole, in all its complexity. A country that has been described, since time immemorial, as the land of milk and honey; a country that, since 1948, has never stopped confining itself in dominant beliefs about its neighbouring countries and their people. I like to consider that this land was once a gigantic Tower of Babel, before God decided to mix up languages and divide Men by fear if they defied him. These photographs deliberately differ from media coverage and the fantasies this specific region stirs up. […]

*I could write for miles and miles about what these photos say, what the architecture alone speaks, the colours and the land.

This book is not recommended for anyone unescorted by a fluent comprehension of language. Not because of any explicit content, but due to understanding. You will not get poetry without inception under its edifice. This poetical book is no other than a book. Faire revivre: vermeil on your lips and in cheeks, you will not find a spoken answer in case you are not willing to search for. Reading. You open it with the will. Do not be forsaken. Please, if you do.
