A pioneer and unique photographic work even in today's contemporary climate. The book concludes a body of work made between 1976-79. Photographing his son Yuval in an abandoned Templar brick and roof tile factory, in the center of Jerusalem.
Cohain, took to his hands the widelux camera, a tool which was designed for a different purpose, producing magical images which mix sharpness and blur, a different perception of time and space, touching and confronting the viewer with deeper emotions.
