Tal Shochat Exhibition Review – The New Yorker

October 27, 2011

 

GOINGS ON ABOUT TOWN: ART

TAL SHOCHAT

 

 

The Israeli photographer’s pictures have a stylized, storybook quality. Shot against pitch-black backdrops and lit like monuments, solitary trees are isolated from the landscape, emphasizing their power as symbols of abundance, endurance, and fertility. Grapefruit, pomegranate, peach, and persimmon trees, photographed at the peak of their growing cycles, are so laden with fruit that they look artificial. It’s a set designer’s version of Eden—extravagantly bountiful but oddly unnatural. Through Nov. 5.
