Jonathan Schechner is a Vermont-based photographer that documents the fraught relationship between place and belonging.

Jonathan Schechner moved to America from Israel as a teenager in 2005 and in his work depicts the feeling of the missing home.

Such emotion feels evident in his use of light, cool and clean as it cuts across the frame. It is apparent in the tactility of skin on skin, and in his portraits; faceless and anonymous. In his statement about the purpose of the ongoing project, Schechner explained that ultimately, it is a way of “processing his own sense of not belonging where he lives”.
