Daniel Tchetchik’s work »Sunburn« deals with contradictory effects of the Middle Eastern climate on the physical and metaphysical landscape — a sun that warms, nurtures, and comforts, burns, strikes, and scars. It is a personal local story that also aspires to address global issues such as climate change, migration, and dwindling natural resources.

Some of the photographs are literally »sunburned,« as part of the negatives were burned in the severe heat. They symbolize a time that has passed, yet their aesthetics often bear certain similarities to the most advanced digital filters, raising more questions about time and the evolution of imagery.

Daniel Tchetchik was born in 1975 in Tel Aviv, where he later studied photography at the Camera Obscura University. He mainly works as a documentary photographer and is currently chief editor of the photography blog of the daily Israeli newspaper Haaretz. His works are part of the collections of the following institutions: Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Ramat Gan Museum of Israeli Art, Peter Blum Gallery, The Marc Rich Foundation, Institut français, R2M.
