ROI KUPER – The Significance of Places

Roi Kuper is not one to shy away from photographing politically charged subjects. He takes me to the Gaza Strip to show me where he shot for his 2014 project Gaza Dreams. Our filming is interrupted by a large group of soldiers who send us away. But we only leave under Roi’s heavy verbal protest. “They can’t just take over any place they want, you know”, he tells me. In the video Roi talks about what historically burdened places mean to him and how he uses Photography as a vehicle to explore those meanings.
