There are many reasons why people leave established communities: war, hunger, natural disasters. Evidence of their communal life remains; buildings, temples, parks and roads last much longer than those who lived there.
Dorit Jordan Dotan, multi-media artist, was born in Israel in 1961. In her work Dorit combines her photography with innovative digital art. Her images often express her social/political views.
