Israeli born photographer Lili Almog is renowned for her intimate spiritual portraits of women’s 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 centering primarily on fashion and portraiture. Her artistic focus is on revealing representations of the feminine body and psyche to portray the state of spiritual and cultural identity among women influenced by western culture (Bed Sequence 2002, Perfect Intimacy 2006, The Other Half of the Sky 2009 and The Space Within 2019). Other projects (Between Presence and Absence 2012 and Down to Earth 2015) engage the environment and capture the traces of human activity through photography, sculpture, and video.
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.
