Michal Chelbin is a photographer living and working in Israel. Her compelling and, often, disarming portraits depict individuals ranging from circus performers to juvenile prisoners. Her work has taken her to small towns in England, Israel, Russia, and Ukraine. No matter the setting, Chelbin is able to achieve a stunning intimacy with her subjects, rendering them “strangely familiar” (the very fitting title of her first photography book).
