Ari Salomon's work is rooted in reinterpreting the tradition of street photography. He takes the performative process of discovering candid people and places and gives it a twist. He is also interested in how photography can reveal the nature and limitations of human perception.
He was born in Israel, raised in San Diego and now is based in San Francisco. He received a B.A. from U.C. Santa Cruz in 1993 in Art History with a focus on contemporary art theory and studio photography. He has exhibited across the USA as well as internationally in Tokyo, Paris and Lodz, Poland.
