ENCLOSED | Meital Dor

The breakout of the Covid-19 pandemic inspired Meital Dor to explore the lives of those living in closed compounds. Her curiosity led her to a closed psychiatric ward in Lev Hasharon, a Mental Health Institution in Israel, focusing her photographic practice on the caregivers and their devotion to the cause. Following their work closely by listening, feeling, and observing their daily chores, Dor realized the humane aspect and significance of their work, while a frightening sense of losing one’s identity gradually became present. Dor’s exposure to such displays of affection, dedication, and unconditional love allowed her to peel away layers of prejudice and confront the fragility of life.
