Originally published as a zine, ‘Israeli Girls’ is an exploration of beauty ideals by Dafy Hagai. For her, it’s important to create real moments when capturing her subjects: “My models are people I can relate to, and my locations are somewhat the same. I look for places I have an emotional connection with, either aesthetically or mostly, nostalgically.”
