Israel likes to brag about how well they are treating the citizens of Gaza, despite this 'small blockade', but this news is coming from the guards... 

Guards do not like to be accused of neglecting their prisoners... Well, do you care to read what some impartial outside third parties have to say about these prisoners and the suffering that they have to endure?

Please note news story at

Running the Numbers looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics in art and photography. 
Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. 
My hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as we find daily in articles and books. 
Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month. 

This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. Employing themes such as the near versus the far, and the one versus the many, I hope to raise some questions about the roles and responsibilities we each play as individuals in a society that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming.
