Israeli-born photographer Lili Almog has worked recently on two series that focused on women who, for various reasons, are living in isolation from the world. Perfect Intimacy, reflects on the cloistered life of Carmelite nuns in monasteries in Palestine, Israel, and Maryland. In The Other Half of the Sky, Almog photographs the matriarchal society of Muslim women in China.
