THINGS HERE AND THINGS STILL TO COME by José Pedro Cortes
ポルトガル写真の新世代を担う1人として注目され、2005年には「Photo London - Emerging Artists Presentations」に選出された、ジョゼ・ペドロ・コルテス（Jose Pedro Cortes）の写真集。テルアビブで暮らす４人の元イスラエル軍女性兵士たちを主軸に、中東の美しい風景の中に潜む、社会的な問題にフォーカスした作品。
During nine months I lived in Tel Aviv. During this period I met four young Jewish women who were born in the USA. They had all decided, at the age of 18, to go to Israel to do the military service. After completing the required two years of service, they decided to stay and live in this idyllic Middle Eastern city. - José Pedro Cortes
The images of four women are interspersed with landscape and detailed views of the city - old cars, over grown palm trees, porticos, puddles of water.. Mixing color and black & white, hard flash and natural light, this book creates a sense of ambiguity placing the viewer in between the intimacy of the portraits and the deserted city of Tel Aviv.
