Yael Malka is a photographer, currently based in Brooklyn, New York. The way we perceive others and how we reveal ourselves to them is the main topic Yael attempts to visualise.
Presented body of work, titled Almost Touching, mirrors the logic of getting to know people. Although, the images strives for intimacy, they offer only clues — disembodied limbs, unmet gazes, and mute objects that are trying to speak.
Yael looks far beyond them and explores the way they speak about our inner world. As Yael beautifully says, ”You don’t need to meet a person’s eyes to know something about them — anonymity does not render a body inexpressive, and objects are seldom mute when seen in context.”
