As Good as Real

Liat Elbling’s artist’s book, As Good as Real, takes a retrospective look at her body of work, from the beginning of her artistic path as she wandered with her camera in Israel’s Bneh Beitkha (Build Your Home) neighborhoods, where she captured hundreds of images of single-family homes, and all the way to her contemporary works, in which she creates the photograph’s reality with her own hands in her studio.

 

The book presents selected works from ten different series of photographs and provides an overview of her creative development over the course of more than a decade. In addition to images of her work, the book offers installation views from exhibitions and also a peek behind the scenes at Elbling’s studio – her raw materials, her work process, and the setting of her photographs.
