That a great line up there...
Rachel Papo was born in 1970 in Columbus, Ohio but was raised in Israel. She began photographing as a teenager and attended a renowned fine-arts high-school in Haifa, Israel. At age eighteen she served in the Israeli Air Force as a photographer. These two intensive years of service inspired her current photographic project titled after her own number during service -- Serial No. 3817131.
She earned a BFA in Fine Arts from Ohio State University in Columbus (1991-96), and an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City (2002-05).
She began photographing Israeli female soldiers in the summer of 2004 as part of her masters thesis project. She continues to photograph in both Israel and New York, pursuing fine art photography and accepting commissioned projects. Her photographs are included in several public and private collections. She currently resides in Brooklyn.
Rachel is represented by Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, where her first solo show is on display until April 15, 2006.
Even with all the sand and other such shit, they still last for years and years if they're cleaned regularly. That sand over there isn't like the sand you find at the beach back here in the states, the shit that blows around and gets in everything is closer in consistency to powdered sugar than it is regular sand. It actually causes more damage to fibrous materials (bootlaces, for example) than it does to weapons and shit like that.fatcat said:I wonder how fast they go though M-16 bolts and uppers with all that sand there, you get sand in your weapon with how close the bolt is to the side wall its like a belt sander.
.... took me a second to figure out who you were talking about then I saw it and burst out laughing, oh I get strange when its late and im tired but that was funny as hell.Bobula said:Anyone notice the wet spot on the blonde girls leg?
