Hagai's first book Israeli Girls (Art Paper Editions, 2014) engendered a new perspective on the queer gaze, bouncing between visual cadences skirting fashion and editorial photography and a refreshingly wide-eyed sense of candidness.

Her new publication, Sunset, prefaces a more experimental line of approach from the Tel Aviv-based artist. Shot in and around Israeli beach resort towns, Sunset sidles architecture, abstraction and fragmented figurative gestures amongst an idyllic and faux-idyllic tableaux of landscapes and beach scenes - the tension between reality and artifice ever-present.
