Tradescantia Pallida, commonly known as the “Wandering Jew,” is a species of a spiderwort plant that adorns domestic interiors and ornamental gardens. Shot in Vilnius, Lithuania, ​"Habitat" uses the cultural meanings of the plant to examine the Jewish character and its place in the world by visually isolating it and resituating it in new environments.
