Photography often deals with the public space and the private space. Frequently, the distinction between interior and exterior, between public domain and private domain creates a distinction between a concrete view and a suggestive vision. But what happens when the subject matter is what is in-between, the no man’s land, the demilitarized zone?

France Lebée-Nadav is wandering in the spaces between the street and the house, between the banal and the poetic. “Common Areas” is an ongoing photographic project that began in the 1980’s.
