About the Photographer
Israeli, b. 1986
Meytar Moran‘s series, Declassified (2017), is a visual poem based on her study of a United States government archive of UFO sightings in the 1950s and 60s. She incorporates photographs as well as found sketches and documents with her own medium format photographs, objects, and installations. The series explores notions of fascination around unsolved mysteries and raises questions about data stability and reliability of archives. Moran completed her BFA in Photography from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem (2013) and her MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts, New York (2017). She is a runner up for the 2017 Snider Prize.
