The evolution of the work of Myriam Tangi since 1983 to now is very dynamic and stronger. Her eye is looking at the secret detail who makes her photographs, so personal, and as a man I feel jealous of her vision from both a woman and a mother : very sensitive, emotional, but with a construction who makes her work not only photographs, but work of art, with a very deep signification. Her culture and her knowledge in Jewish tradition, religion and culture, goes through her photographs, confirming the works of Pasternak “The man is mute, images are the only to speak” and Myriam’s photographs talks to us, no matters if she is in Paris or Jerusalem, she is in her world and generous to open it to us. I am curious to see her next step.
