Friedman - Hallel is engaged in serial staged photography, photographing portraits of characters and places. She creates out of a longing for a past in which she never lived, and in her photographs, she crafts worlds of her own making using old-fashioned aesthetics combined with contemporary ‘touches’. She engages with themes related to the erasure and blurring of identity. Her series "Chosen" moves between several layers of time. Friedman – Hallel chooses young women whose look seems fitting to the Renaissance, dresses and combs them in the spirit of the period and embeds their image into works of art which are hundreds of years old. This act combines different media, provides the women with an alternative identity, hence blurs the lines between model and human. The choices in this series run the gamut between alternative-modern and archaic, touching on moments in time while simultaneously confusing the space-time continuum.
