In Caspar David Friedrich's well-known painting "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog", a man stands with his back to the viewer. He is positioned in the center of the composition, but his attention is focused on the landscape and the raging storm in the distance. He is outside of that occurrence
Harari too is photographed with her back to the viewer, working, positioned physically and mentally outside and above the scene depicted in front of her: figures in movement, men hugging or wrestling one another. Their relationship is ambiguous, one hand hugs while the other hand pulls or pushes.
We can not identify a place or time in this painting, it seems like a gathering for a joyful occasion that suddenly turned into a violent event.
