Tablet Magazine, a Jewish arts, news and lifestyle magazine just posted a very interesting podcast with photographer Yael Ben-Zion.
Yael Ben-Zion's book 5638 Miles Away, published by Kehrer, documents the complications of trying to live an ordinary life in Israel, where evidence of the country's military orientation abound. Ben-Zion currently lives in New York and visits family and friends in Israel frequently.
The title of her fascinating project and book 5638 Miles Away is the distance between New York and Tel Aviv.
Please visit her website and see more images from this project and read more about it here.

The book which was selected title for the German Photo Book Award 2011 and one of Photo Eye's best book for 2010 comes out in America this week and is accompanied by an exhibition at Weill Art Gallery, 92nd Street Y, New York, NY
