The Art of Coping
Naomi Leshmen is a photographer. She is also an example of the many Israelis who turn to art, placing beauty above the pain that too often visits an Israeli family. Naomi lost her husband, an Israeli Air Force pilot in an unfortunate accident. Then, she began documenting the scenes where other had passed in her series Way to Beyond.
Her explanation of the cathartic nature of this process as well as information on her newest project, Runways, can be found in this comprehensive interview.
Artists 4 Israel applaud all who, when faced with the unfortunate reality of pain, allow it to motivate their creation of pleasure.
