    I see the swan image as an image with sexual and gender

    Think of Zeus that transform to a swan in order to seduce….or the
    phalli neck of the swan….also you can see the swan image as a representation of
    a delicate feminine beauty….(like in the famous swan lake) I feel that the swan
    is a perfect representation of an androgynous creature there for he combines
    both values of feminine and masculine . It defy the concept of gender
    divination that is a big part of west and patriarch society in which we live in

    Hi Einat, Thanks for sharing about your ideas of conflicts and

    For me, as a photographer, I see the struggle of light and shadow to
    be most conflicting. In order to have highlights in a photograph, there must be
    darkness. Darkness is often hard to accept because it represents something that
    is hidden, covered, and mysterious. But it is this darkness that makes any
    image, photo or painting, appealing and thought-provoking.
