In her deceptively calm photographs of roadblocks in the West Bank, Ristelhueber creates images that quietly-but powerfully-reveal the ravages of what seems to be an unresolvable impasse. 

From the artist: What am I doing on the roof of this car? Perhaps, I tell myself, 'it is sweet to see, from the safe and distant shore, others in distress amidst billows and in raging gales; not drawing delight from another's misfortune, but rejoicing over being spared such desperation?' Doubtless as an artist, I am at war, too.
