Nurit Yarden’s photography is intriguing and demanding in a genuine manner. She constructs multiple series of photographs that claim an intimate encounter from the spectator. Her photos halt the time, and in the same time, replete with present time of the collective reality of our lives. Yet, the lens and the narrator focus on the private and intimate. Yarden succeeds in locating the relations among text and photography, single unique moments and developing continuity of numerous images that requires time, mind and recollection.
