Review: Lili Almog at Andrea Meislin Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 09, 2009

Almog's photographs of Chinese women, many of them members of the Muslim minority living in rural provinces, are at once affectionate and anthropological—occasionally radiant, unfailingly sincere, but rather stiff and a little dry.


A series of brief video portraits livens things up, as do unexpected splashes of color: vibrant red, blue, and green fabrics against a bleached-out landscape. And Almog's subjects themselves are ingratiating, if only because they're so rarely photographed. They may not be entirely comfortable in front of the camera, but they face it with a charming lack of guile, an openness that Almog never exploits.

From The New Yorker.
