5 & 3/4 Questions
1. Describe yourself and your work.
It’s hard for me to define myself because I am constantly changing. What remains constant is my photography style—minimalist, clean, formalistic, and accurate.
2. How did you get started?
I grew up in a house where my dad photographed incessantly. He had plenty of film cameras, and I remember on one of our family trips, I took his camera—which was then heavy and complicated—and just looked through the viewfinder. It was the first time I saw the world through a lens, and I loved it! It was a powerful experience for me, and at that moment I knew I wanted a camera for myself.
3. What piece of work best represents you and why?
My photos are all characterized by a formalist, minimalist look. I put a significant emphasis on lines, shapes, and colors, and I have high sensitivity to minimalist aesthetics. I'm currently working on my final project for my BA studies in photography, and I think that this project represents me best.
4. What are you into currently?
The BA project I’m currently working on deals mainly with local Israeli moments and aesthetics.
5. What have you learned that young creatives should know?
Leave your comfort zone at least once a day, and don’t cancel your ideas without trying them.
