Girls of the Israeli army: a special look at women soldiers in the photos by Rachel PapoPictolic
The pictures of girls serving in the IDF, today will surprise nobody. But most of them glorify a women's charm and show a sleek beauties, languidly leaning on the machines and vypyachivalis delicious roundness. Daily life of women fighters has nothing to do with these pictures, because the army, especially the Israeli — blood, sweat and a huge responsibility. Photographer Rachel Papo herself served in the military service, decided to show female soldiers without embellishment.
Women in uniform standing in guard of the state of Israel do not always have model looks and the time to apply makeup. Their beauty is not in manicures and hairstyles, and in quiet strength and confidence, his military skill and weapons.
Rachel Papo, despite being born in the US, most of life spent in Israel, which he gave his military duty, having served military number 3817131. This figure became the name of her interesting photo project showcasing women soldiers of the IDF without the slightest sentiment.
Work Papo is a reconsideration of the role of women in the modern world, where male political games mother and homemaker is forced to take up arms. As throughout the history of mankind antagonists of the war, the fair sex if he took up arms, only in order to stop the death and destruction. This is what is shown in the series of works "No. 3817131".
Another objective of the project of the photographer is to rid the world of skepticism, which has become the norm in the case when a woman takes up arms. To heroines pictures Papo can not be treated leniently — they are not always photogenic, sometimes concentrated, tired or even frustrated. But they are always very different from the frivolous painted dolls, which, thanks to the efforts of mass culture, many men imagine women of the military.
The usual work girls photos Rachel Papo — daily workouts, outfits, and guards, often in the desert, under the relentless Israeli sun, not the posing in cafes and swimming pools. Responsibility, discipline, dedication and courage are valued in their environment higher than evening dresses, fashion swimwear and passes to the prestigious fitness clubs.
We need to emphasize that the girls of the Israeli army a worthy opponent that cannot be underestimated in any case.
