Exposure № 110: Always, in the background, there is a dead queen

One of our most prolific and brilliant Snake-Oilers, Naama Sarid-Maleta’ returns with two new images from a series of 11. Here’s the first, titled for a quote from Lucía Etxebarria, “Always, in the background, there is a dead queen”.

Always, in the background, there is a dead queen

Model: Hadas Tapouchi
Location: Tel Aviv
“These are two photos from a series of 11, made in the model’s house. It’s a glimpse into her life (or my life reflected by her), letting us enter under her skin to her most intimate moments. The photos have to do with space and sadness and loneliness. They talk about childhood fantasy and the disappointment of growing up.”

Naama Sarid-Maleta’ is an architect. She began an intense career as a documentary and conceptual photographer in Madrid (2008) and has contributed to magazines and publications in Europe and Israel. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Ukraine, Spain and Israel. Her sustained challenge as an artist is the desire to “build dreams” in visual codes. She had developed a scheme of work based on the interaction of enforcement procedures and the organizations of architecture and a conceptual result more expressionistic and plastic in its nature. Her husband is also an architect and photographer from Cuba, and they work as a team with multidisciplinary projections.
