The thin, elegant woman who stood on repeated occasions near the women praying at the Western Wall – those who insisted on wearing a tallit and those who tried to prevent them from doing so – didn’t attract much attention at the time. She was one of many photographers trying to catch moments of spiritual elevation or outrage there.

Years later, however, it came out that Myriam Tangi – a poet, photographer and painter – was searching for something broader and deeper than the clashes between haredi women and members of Women of the Wall.
