The Veil

Nina Medioni
2019 - 2022

The Veil questions both the religious and liberal youth Medioni met during her travels in Israel. Although the work was initially built around the daily life of her young Jewish orthodox cousins, it has expanded over the years to incorporate the stories of other young people she met along the way. With the series, photography became a way for Medioni to question her place as a foreigner – as a non-Jew. Her hesitation to include herself in Israeli society is  represented by her focus on its diverse youth. By mixing images of her family with those of strangers, The Veil also investigates Medioni’s ambivalent relationship to her family, thus probing at our ability to establish intimate links with those who are distant from us.
