In “Orchard Trail” Michal Greenboim creates photographic diptychs. These photographs were taken as individual images over the years, as daily responses to the world around her, as in a visual journal, and later paired. In examining the photographs she realized that she “had subconsciously been photographing [her] childhood.” She says, “The pictures in front of me held deep memories of curiosity, innocence and wonder. They were my remembrances, wandering in the backyard, exploring moments like the sound of a tree [or] a bird in the sky.” Images were in solo exibitions at The Griffin Museum Of Photogaphy and in Davis Orton Gallery.

A Day in Cuba
Shortly after the thawing of relations with the US and almost concurrently to President Barack Obama’s historic visit to the island in March 2016, Michal Greenboim flew out to Cuba with a group of fellow photography enthusiasts.The language barrier was no hindrance to interacting and forming warm, spontaneous connections with Cubans. The lens faithfully captured each fleeting instant with uncanny vibrancy while at other times, it lingered in the moment to reveal details of the Cuban life with a certain poignancy.
If there's a universal language inherent to being human, Michal Greenboim’s artwork poetically and seamlessly echoes it in this photographic chamber.
