LATITUDE: 30°57'14"N / LONGITUDE: 34°39'25"E, November 13, 2011. Pitas, targets to simulate enemy (in this case Egyptian and Syrian) installations in a closed live-fire training zone. The targets, created by piling up earth mounds, are reminiscent of the ancient archaeological remains that are also scattered throughout this part of the desert. The live-fire zone, established on former pasturelands of the ʽAzāzme tribe, is not far from the border with Egypt. Large portions of the southern and western sections of the Negev are considered off-limits and open only to the Israeli military. These spaces are intended to seal off the border zone and obstruct the passage of the Bedouin communities., from the series Desert Bloom
