Tami Bahat is an Israeli photographer based in Los Angeles. Bahat’s work is attracting strong attention worldwide with forthcoming shows in Chicago, Los Angeles. This will be her first show here in Australia.
Bahat’s photographs use vintage props, unusual live animals and simple lighting to create dramatic portraits housed in unique vintage frames. The works straddle the space between past and present in a series of portraits that transcend time but also very clearly speak to the Renaissance old masters.
