Perimeter is thrilled to announce the launch of Sunset by Dafy Hagai, published by Perimeter Editions.

Young Israeli photographer Dafy Hagai has made a name for her playful, sexually curious images of young women amidst a uniquely Middle Eastern geographic, cultural and architectural paradigm. Her first book Israeli Girls (Art Paper Editions, 2014) engendered a new perspective on the queer gaze, bouncing between visual cadences skirting fashion and editorial photography and a refreshingly wide-eyed sense of candidness. Her new publication for Melbourne imprint Perimeter Editions, Sunset, prefaces a more experimental line of approach from the Tel Aviv-based artist. Shot in and around Israeli beach resort towns, Sunset sidles architecture, abstraction and fragmented figurative gestures amongst an idyllic and faux-idyllic tableaux of landscapes and beach scenes – the tension between reality and artifice ever-present.

Dafy Hagai's work has been published in magazines including VICE, Dazed and Confused, i-D, Jalouse, L’Officiel Italia, Vault, Nero Mag, Wax, It’s nice that, V, Grazia, Juice, Unlimited, Dreck, Office and Pik, and for clients including Levi's, Eytys, X-Ray Eyewear, Big K.R.I.T., Joey Bada$$, Castro Israel and several others.
