LiliAlmog

Moving from autre to auteur, photographer Lili Almog has managed to talk herself into a number of secluded spaces - from women’s bathhouses and bedrooms in New York to Carmelite monasteries in Haifa and Bethlehem. Her work is part of the long tradition of observational photography and takes part in the ongoing dialogue between mass media and reportage.

Almog’s women are anything but passive subjects - even if veiled and masked, there’s a strong sense of the flesh and bone that exists beyond the frame. The Perfect Intimacy series used a simple camera and little post-production to present the personal lives of Nuns living in seclusion. The locations and environments dominate these works - becoming dynamic stages that enable dialogue between a knowing subject and a patient viewer.

This is most apparent in Bed Sequence, a series of intimate portraits of women in their bedrooms. Almog toes the line between intimacy and voyeurism with ease, and there’s little sense of the eroticism frequently used to image women’s bodies. Performative, understated and living, these large scale works attempt to look eye-to-eye with the camera’s most commanding fetish: the female body.
