Makhtesh Ramon: the largest erosion cirque in the world, shaped like a heart.
Millions of years ago, this rocky desert was an ocean and the center of this depression in the ground was the peak of a mountain. As the ocean receded, rivers formed and softer rock slowly washed away, deepening the center of the makhtesh and creating the walls that surround it. Now, they stand 350 meters tall, overlooking a landscape unlike any other on earth—where layers of rock have been pulled back to reveal stone from 220 million years ago.
I chose to shoot my 2021 LOVE by Pnina Tornai collection at Makhtesh Ramon to emphasize that our beautiful world has been here forever and will forever be a home for all of mankind. We should all remember to respect our generous planet, and to respect one another. The heart shape of this unique crater says it all...
All we need is LOVE.
