Malka Inbal's inspiration is her concern with real-life issues such as aging, intimacy and parenthood; she uses these themes as raw material to create her distinctive photographs. Her work takes a revolutionary look at the possibilities of contemporary photography as well as our assumptions towards the medium. Objects disintegrate, shimmer and reappear; the saturated colors embrace and play with light, as if in a dream state. There is a tension in these images - our eye catches sight of something within the rolling shapes that we might identify, and indeed the pictures rely on our personal involvement and interpretation for their consummation.
Malka's photographs not only force us to question our bias towards photography as a purely realistic documentation, they also invite us to question the meaning of reality itself. To Malka Inbal, as is evident in her stunning works, reality goes beyond the material visual surface, including all that we can imagine and dare to experience.
