Naama Marinberg has been photographing the Carmel since the big fire last winter.

Marinberg, a teacher at Lifshitz College, a director and photographer in her own right, found herself returning to the Carmel again and again: “I grew up near the Carmel, it was my backyard,” she says, “After the flames were extinguished, I just couldn’t stop going there and taking pictures, trying to express my feelings through the lens.”

Now, in time for Lag Ba’omer, the Hillel 17 Gallery in Jerusalem is presenting an exhibition of her works showing nature’s struggle to overcome the devastating aftermath of the fire.

The photographs show nature’s enduring capacity for renewal – a red anemone growing from the ashes, a bashful primrose lifting its head between burnt branches and new leaves where everything was charred.

Hillel 17 Gallery in Lifshitz College, Rehov Hillel 17, Jerusalem.

Sun., Tue. and Thur. 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Mon. and Wed. 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Until June 20.
