The process of discovering and analyzing the Dead Sea Scrolls involved the crossing of many borders—political, theological, and inter-disciplinary. In some cases, all we have left are the shreds and remnants of larger scrolls, destroyed in rage by Roman soldiers or taken apart for financial gain by bandits in search of antiquities.
This photograph of an infra-red black and white negative taken in the 1960s by Najib Anton Albina shows that even these fragments from the past are precious treasures. The preoccupation with reconstructing the big picture from tiny remnants is testimony to the modern yearning to understand the hidden treasures of the past.
In Sight photographs are available for purchase as warm-tone archival prints mounted ‘floating’ over their matching quotes (Hebrew – English); framed in dark African Wenge recessed wooden frames.
