    "יִשָּׁקֵנִי מִנְּשִׁיקוֹת פִּיהוּ" This photography is done in the dark with long exposure and is experimental because you cannot go back exactly the same lighting as the lighting is portable and not fixed.

    It was a grey morning in Seattle when the inspiration hit me to create three stand-alone prints that spell out the word "Emet" - "Truth" - in Hebrew. .
Truth.
.
Religions are built around it. Wars have been waged over it. Friendships and relationships are bonded through it.
.
One simple word that unlocks the complexities of humankind in one doing. .
Truth is a journey. It's an action, taking one step at a time, to unfold the layers behind and depths behind it. Each panel of this triptych represents a step in the journey for truth, whether it be spiritual, physical, or emotional. .
Alef - א - the first letter of the word 'emet'.It is also the first letter of the alef-bet. Alef represents the first step in the journey to seek truth. It's the discovery of the self, the wanting and the need for a deeper reality with more meaning. .
Mem - מ - the second letter in the word 'emet'. It is also the letter that falls directly in the middle of the Hebrew alef-bet. Mem is the middle of the journey for truth. It is the research, the questions, and the discovery process. The journey for truth, whether spiritual or emotional, comes in layers, and 'mem' is the process of uncovering the layers. .
Toph - ת - The last letter of the word 'emet'. It is also the last letter of the Hebrew alef-bet. This letter represents the conclusion of our search. It mirrors the entire journey from beginning to the end. This last panel is intrinsically connected to all the other letters. One cannot be hung without the other, or else the word is incomplete. So too, every step in the journey for truth is necessary. The process is all connected, one cannot exist without the other.

    I always find it fascinating to see how different languages influence each other and even change as a result.
When my mother and her brother grew up at their Greek grandparent’s house in Athens, each time they were too load, their grandfather was saying out loud: Sekiz Dokuz! This was a signal for their grandmother to come and fetch them, so that they won’t disturb him in his important work.
Only later on, when my mother was a young woman, she found out the meaning of these words: eight, nine in Turkish.
.
The Jewish community in what we define today as Greece, spoke different dialects, connected to their heritage, the specific location in which they lived, and to their community.
The Romaniotes of Ioannina, the place where my great-grandmother came from, spoke Yevanic, Greek mixed with Hebrew and some Turkish.
When one would want to bless a young person, they would say: “God willing, I will throw a Talis (Talit/טלית) on your head”, which actually meant: may you soon get married, but in a mixture of the three different languages: “Inshalla na s‘rikso to taleth“.
.
In the photograph, is an art work I’ve created when I was working at the women’s gallery (עזרת נשים) of the Romaniote synagogue in Ioannina: Kahal Kadosh Yashal (קהל קדוש ישן) last March, influenced and inspired by about 30 sewing machines on the spot, that used to belong to the women of the community.
I used a Talit, a photograph of my grandmother and my mother, shortly before my grandmother broke her marriage and my mother was taken away from her to live with her grandparents, and a crocheted cloth that my mother’s grandmother have created.
