• I see the swan image as an image with sexual and gender representation. 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 barriers. 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.

      Also, I had never thought of a swan as androgynous, but now I can really see it in your work. Very interesting!
