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.

I'll take one of each. I like the second set of pics better :twisted:

The Isreali army's got way hotter chicks than ours does. About 80% of the chicks I've seen in the Army were manlier than male action stars.

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.

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.

The sand is finer over there cause it has been desert longer. US army had trouble with the air filters on some choppers cause they tested them in US deserts and when they got to the middle east the finer particles got into engines and wore them out more quickly.

BTW there are still significant A1 M16s in service in Israel.

Hell yeah we had problems with the air filters, but not just with the choppers, it was all the vehicles. I've never spent so much time doing vehicle maintenance in my life, and all the problems were always in the intakes, air filters, the "air conditioners", and so on. The choppers were kind of priority to get new filters, though, since our trucks weren't flying through the air.
