Explore Anat Icar Shoham’s imaginary archive of the COVID-19 pandemic, explored through the metaphor of the natural process of seed dispersal. Each scan uproots the objects from their context, presenting them as fragments, alluding to states of isolation, social remoteness and trauma. View Anat's exhibition Covid-19 metaphors here.
Hear Anastasia discuss her series Naked Britain, exploring the concept of the self and its connection to society. Her portraits expose the subject's identity by presenting them at their most vulnerable and free. "To be genuinely naked is, after all, to be truly free." 

About the artists

Anastasia Trahanas is a socio-documentary and fine art photographer. Born in Melbourne, living in the UK, she has been taking photographs since she was 12, documenting life around her. Constantly driven forwards in her photography, Anastasia captures what lies beneath the street and beneath our skin. She nourishes her photographic eye by challenging the boundaries outside the so-called societal 'normal'. Turning her representations into positive images, she gravitates to photographing the female, the marginalised, stigmatised and vulnerable. She has exhibited internationally and has qualifications in photography, social anthropology, a Master's in visual anthropology, and is an educator.  


Anat Icar Shoham is a fine art photographer who lives and works in Israel. She has an M.Sc from the Hebrew University. She is an M.A student specializing in History of Photography at David and Yolanda Katz Faculty of the Arts, Tel-Aviv University.
