Lili Almog / Bio

Israeli born photographer Lili Almog (b. 1961, Tel Aviv)
is renowned for her intimate spiritual portraits of women cultural identities around the world. Lili moved to New York in the mid 80’s and began her career as a photojournalist for several international news publications focusing primarily on fashion and portraiture. Her artistic focus was on creating representations of the feminine body and psyche to capture the state of spiritual and cultural identity among women influenced by western culture (Bed Sequence 2002, Perfect Intimacy 2006 and The Other Half of the Sky 2009). In more recent work (Between Presence and Absence 2015) her focus shifted from social behavior to traces of human activity, including sculptures and video into the series.

Almog has worked primarily through photography in environmental portraiture, the experimental direction of The Space Within presents new views of the feminine figure and how their identity has evolved over the worldwide circumstances.

She has been exhibited widely, with solo shows at several international venues including: The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; Emmanuel Walderdoff Gallery, Germany; Photographers’ Place, UK; The Alternative Museum, New York; Griffin Museum of Photography, Boston, MA; Museet for Fotokunst, Denmark; Ffotogallery, UK; Prague House of Photography, Czech Republic; and Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel.
