Essay 367 • Feb 4th 2019

This is a continuation of an on-going street photography series I began in 2017. I observe and participate in the interaction of people and spaces in new and familiar locations. This particular essay is a collection of moments from Belgium and The Netherlands. 


 Hana Mendel, 22, is lens-based artist working primarily with themes concerning her Jewish heritage, differing subjective realities, and conflict between socialized gender and the body. Due to developing interests in interdisciplinary imagery, Mendel intertwines a background in illustration and music with lens-based arts to create an immersive experience in visual communication. Currently, Mendel uses her art as a method of precipitating important dialogue regarding genocides and the infrastructure of past/present dictatorships.
