Former private chef to Malcolm Forbes, Calvin Klein and Gloria Vanderbilt, Naomi Uman recently traded in her eggbeater and oven mitts for a 16mm Bolex and acid resistant black rubber gloves. Naomi’s work is marked by her signature handmade aesthetic, often shooting, hand-processing and editing her films with the most rudimentary of practices. Naomi’s films have been exhibited widely at the Sundance and Rotterdam International Film Festivals, The New York Film Festival, and the San Francisco International Film festival among others; she has also screened her work at The Guggenheim Museum, The Whitney, The Smithsonian, and Mexico City’s Museo de Arte Moderno.
