„Hush tells the story of a society living through a recurring loop of violent outbursts, in which, time and again, life is shattered into pieces and reconstructed.

It is a photo book that deals with the long lasting effects of an apparently never-ending conflict, passed on by generations. Through personal correspondence and images spanning over a decade, Noa Ben-Shalom turns her camera away from the more obvious scenes of direct violence in order to focus on the subtle ways this conflict has permeated all aspects of life in Israel, almost without being noticed. Hush enables a quiet moment of introspection within a landscape in which the absurd has become the norm.“

Hush is the eleventh edition to be published by the Montreal based art book press, and it features over 130 photagraphs documenting the Israeli-Palestinian conflict made by Ben-Shalom over a fourteen year period. Ben-Shalom turns her camera away from the more obvious scenes of direct violence in order to focus on the subtle ways this conflict has permeated all aspects of life in Israel. The images are accompanied by letters and emails written by the photobrapher, printed in Hebrew, English, and Arabic.
The correspondence provides both a socio-political context for the images, as well as a window into the emotional experience of the artist as witness. Hush enables a quiet moment of introspection within a landscape in which the absurd has become the norm. The resulting compendium tells the story of a society living through a recurring loop of violent outbursts, in which, time and again, life is shattered into pieces and reconstructed. It is a photo book that deals with the long lasting effects of an apparently never-ending conflict, passed on by generations.
