I know this scenery looks like a computerized setting, or like a low budget imitation of the set of Truman Show, but no. This image was taken 40 minutes from Tel Aviv, somewhere in the Israeli suburbs (did anyone notice, by the way, that the term "suburb" is a derogatory one, made of two words actually?). Anyhow, I am sure some of you already noticed this piece is a parody (and a parody is also a kind of a homage), to one of Helmut Newton's most famous images, and one of my favorite ones. I call the result "anti-glamour". My suburbian-lunatic-wanna-be-diva looks so stupid in it, and the truth is I love her for that! I hope you do too...
