Young Israeli photographer Dafy Hagai has made a name for her playful, sexually curious images of young women amidst a uniquely Middle Eastern geographic, cultural and architectural paradigm. Her first book 'Israeli Girls' engendered a new perspective on the queer gaze, bouncing between visual cadences skirting fashion and editorial photography and a refreshingly wide-eyed sense of candidness. Her new publication, 'Sunset', prefaces a more experimental line of approach. Shot in and around Israeli beach resort towns, 'Sunset' sidles architecture, abstraction and fragmented figurative gestures amongst an idyllic and faux-idyllic tableaux of landscapes and beach scenes – the tension between reality and artifice ever-present.
