I love photography. I like the act of photographing; I have a passion for it, as if I go inside the frame and live there, happy, in a place where I can get lost. It has been this way for me since my early childhood. The resulting photo is not less miraculous than the process itself and from a place of higher self-awareness and knowledge. I perceive the present as a meeting point between the hidden and the revealed and this point of revelation interests me. I am trying to capture this mysterious instant, the actual energy of manifestation, the passage from the metaphysical to the physical.
After some years in Berlin for which I left my country Israel-(1997-2005) looking for a new context and my freedom of creation, intending to clean myself of that heavy private or national heritage all the same.(holocaust stories – absence of mother love manifestation)
Searching into that black hole, the dark space in-between played an important role in my objects as in my life. Always interested in going in…I was afraid. Continuingly investigating into the divine instant of the creation, its energy, and its physical manifestation. My language of forms became world known with my 3D metal object - “take away spaces” and “space definitions”
I still did not find my peace possessed by the question and criticism “what are we running after?”
I went back and relocated myself consciously in ground 0 –into The Desert (2008). Now again with the Camera
( In the last 10 years my passion and my main creative tool are photography.)
