Artist's Statement

My work grapples with concepts of time, memory and place, investigating aesthetic and societal norms held by both Israeli society and the world at large. Whether documentary or staged photography, each series appears meditative, strangely calm, yet is charged with a discomfiting energy--a sense of the passage of the moment the image was shot.


Inbal Abergil is a photographer currently living and working in New York City.
