Selected Works

Tal Shochat was born in 1974 in Netanya. She was educated at the Hamidrasha School of Art of Beit Berl College from 1995 to 1999.

Shochat takes photographs of fruit trees against black backdrops. An article on explained that she ” cleaned every branch and leaf before shooting five fruit trees that grow in Israel – peach, almond, pomegranate, apple and persimmon – at their peak of ripeness against a black background.” In a review of an exhibit at the V&A, the Financial Times suggested her photographic method was comparable to David Buckland’s.

Her artwork is in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in Los Angeles, California, United States, and the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London, United Kingdom.
