Yael Malka

Yael Malka, a native New Yorker, is currently self-publishing her first photo book, with co-author, Cait Oppermann. She graduated from Pratt in May 2012 with a BFA in Photography and can now be found working in her studio in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. In the summer of 2012 Yael and Cait launched a kickstarter in order to raise funds to travel across Europe and create a photographic book of their travels. The book titled Sea Blues, is due to go to press this spring. Today we share that series.

Sea Blues

These images are from a 70-day backpacking trip across Morocco, Turkey and several countries within Europe. The photographs speak to the constant feeling of displacement and disorientation from my time traveling, yet a deep love for travel and discovery. I went on this trip with my girlfriend, who is a big part of these images. The work displays the comfort and discomfort I felt while traveling as well as my perspective on time, which became very elastic.
