Abstract:

"The world depicted in Celestial Nights is composed of a delicately constructed order where earthly elements and the heavens mirror each other. In this new series of compelling night images, the land and skies of Israel and the Sinai are offered to the viewer as mystical points of entry and departure. Folberg sets an ancient land resonant with meaning - as it is the cradle to three major world religions - against the awesome and eternal spectacle of the night sky."--BOOK JACKET.
