About this product
- DescriptionThis work is an intimate and moving portrait of the lives of Carmelite nuns in three monasteries. Over the last two years, Lili Almog has made extensive visits to nuns in three different Carmelite monasteries - one in Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel, where the order was founded and assumed its name in the year 1200; the first Carmelite monastery in the United States, Port Tobacco; and one located at the birthplace of Jesus, Bethlehem, Palestine. The result of this work, Perfect Intimacy , is an experience of the cloistered world these nuns live in, and a documentation of their state of mind, relationship with God and spiritual identity. It is a continuation of Almog's ongoing attempt to explore women and their private spaces. The ecomy of style in Almog's photographic composition, a limited colour palette and an emphasis on just a few pictorial components corresponds aptly with the chaste and austere way of life in the monastery. Almog's portraits achieve an emblematic quality, reverberating with, and alluding to, the intensity found in abundance in religious icography. Perfect Intimacy offers an unfettered and authentic introduction to a group of women destined to remain anymous in this peculiar cloistered world.
