> DESCRIPTION

Born in Jerusalem, Israel, Chen Carmi received her B.F.A. in photography at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem in 2005. Carmi is currently working toward her M.F.A. in photography at California State University, Long Beach.

Carmi takes photographic portraits of family, friends, and pets. In these portraits, she study the basis of their relationship, be it commitment, love, or fate. The images, often in black and white, are shot in a medium format. Subjects are portrayed in a formal and rigid manner. Using specific clothing, time of day, and background, Carmi isolates the object being photographed from immediate recognition of time and place, creating a world that is a physical reflection of her emotional experience.
