My name is Idan Golko, 41, Israel-based photographer.
Since I remember myself, the world was not an easy place for me. all seemed so intense and significant. For many years now, photography helps me to deal with the dark depressive sides in me. I find reflections of my inner world in reality. This dialogue keeps me sane.
My images are on the boundary between the sharp and the foggy. Both are trying to answer inner questions of identity, sanity and functioning in this world. I mostly deal with existential situations of sorrow and despair facing hope and the will to live, after all.
I use only second hand cameras and I never use long zooms because I love the thrill of getting close. I’m trying as hard as I can not to interfere and to be unnoticed while I’m photographing.
