Kerem shezaf (Shezaf vineyard on the high Negev Plateau. It is an equalized vineyard where we do not spray the vines, the olives and the wild desert vegetation. Therefor we have the highest rate of good insects in the Negev that balances those who can harm. The vegetation punctures the loess soil and seep inn grater quantity of natural flood water that nourish the vineyard.
All those produce good grapes and olives. The grapes are pressed and ferments into natural wines in traditional ways and the sharp oil is considered to be one of the best.
I started taking photographs at a young age, at a time photography was mainly black and white, color and slides that needed to be developed in laboratories. The cameras were mechanical and you needed to insert films take photos and roll them back. My first camera was Kodak Retina My first camera was Kodak Retina when I was 13. It was with me till I was 21 then I moved to Canon and then to the Nikon F2 that photographers liked but was too delicate for me and in1992, when I went to Somalia to cover the civil war and hunger it stuck every 8th shot and I had to roll it back, open the back of the camera’ lift the shutter of the camera to the applause of other journalist and stat shooting all over again.
What is photography? Is it light subject and the photographer’s eye? also.
These are the qualities but it is primarily the thought bout photography, like in all the branches of art. I photographed a lot in the last 50 years- people, beauty, nature, culture and a lot of pain.
Mivdad Ramon, where the time passes by.
is a garden valley engulfed by grapes and olives vineyards in the upper Zin basin.
It is a good place to stop for a day two or more as the pace is dictated by sunrise and sunset, the quietness of the desert, the harmonious architecture un spoiled nature as the agriculture assimilates into the space try to live lightly on the big nature.
Next to the retreat stands the winery where the natural wines and olive oil are being made of the organic grapes and olives.
From time to time literary, poetry and musical events takes place in the retreat.
