Adi Nes, 1966-

Kiryat Gat native Nes is one of Israel’s most prominent photographers. He stages art photos to convey themes of masculinity and identity, often reflecting the influence of iconic artworks and his experiences growing up gay on Israel’s periphery. One of his best known pieces, “The Last Supper Before Going out to Battle,” is a re-creation of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper” with Israeli soldiers around a table.
