Tel Aviv-based photographer Dafy Hagai seeks to portray the coming of age of girls in Israel through a dreamy filter of Americana-tinged snapshots. The series began as a zine intending to depict suburban Israeli youth culture, and the pictures nostalgically reflect girls on the cusp of adulthood in a place many consider primarily in terms of its uncertain and controversial political and social climate. As this image of youth culture in such a place is often lacking, Hagai set out to show suburban girls who, like their Western counterparts, are just dealing with growing up, learning about their body, ownership and sexuality. In short, she captures the beauty of girl power in her hometown.
