Naomi Leshem

Naomi Leshem

Hometown: Jerusalem

Based in: Yahod

Naomi Leshem was born in Jerusalem in 1963. She lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Naomi Leshem’s artistic process begins with a recollection, or even a dream. In her photographic process, the camera serves as a tool for recounting stories, which are the offspring of her thoughts, recollections, or research.
Leshem’s interest lies in areas of life and being that may be defined as “in betweens”. This is an aspect that feels familiar, giving her the freedom to shift between worlds – terrestrial and celestial (“Way to Beyond”, 2003-2006), conscious and unaware (“Sleepers”, 2006-2010) and directed and accidental (“Runways”, 2007). Leshem tends to depict situations that she feels are part of a course between different states in life, whether from childhood to adulthood, wakefulness to sleep, or life to death. In her new series, (“Centered”), Leshem seeks to examine how individuals from different places formulate different interpretations of the same existing images, as a result of their personal and cultural differences.

Landscape is a recurring motif in Leshem’s photographic series, specifically, the juxtaposition of figures and landscape and the tension between localism and universalism. She is also interested in the concept of time. The decisive photographic moment becomes diffused in her photographs, as a single, unmanipulated image that encompasses different moments in time.

Naomi Leshem graduated from the Photography Department of Hadassah College in Jerusalem in 1987. She has shown in Israel, the United States, and across Europe. Leshem is a recipient of the Constantiner Award for an Israeli photographer from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Her works are included in the collections of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the NORTON Museum of Art in Florida, and the Shpilman Institute for Photography in Tel Aviv.
