A series of staged photographs of lesser-known, but significant, women of the Old Testament by Israeli photographer Michal Baratz Koren. The unconventional, romantic portraits are reminiscent of Renaissance paintings and are rendered in concentrated hues and soft lighting. Koren imagines these women as powerful figures and stages her sitters, mostly family members and acquaintances dressed in flea-market garments, in traditional compositions. The series was inspired by an old book about women of the Bible she came across while cleaning her grandmother’s apartment. While paging through the portraits of Sarah, Rachel and Leah, Deborah and Bathsheba, she was baffled by the lack of descriptions and content about the women. Koren then embarked on this series, choosing which women she wanted to highlight, and then set about interpreting their stories and reimagining their circumstances.
