The camera is my tool, my instrument, my weapon – I shoot all the time, not as an act of killing but as an act of wounding, opening up an emotional dialogue, awareness. Through photography, I take things apart and reassemble them in an unorthodox way.
In the darkness, light is the material that allows us to see. We all see the same light. In photography, light is the source. I use the flashlight in order to take out and accentuate both individuals and objects from reality, taking ‘ownership’ over them.
People are my subjects and through individuality I examine multiplicity, encompassing not only the mainstream of society but also its sidelines. I put the spotlight on marginal people, whether “margins” is the periphery of Israel or the outcasts of society.
My work builds relations between images. Through a hybrid presentation, I question the connections between painting and photography, the moving image and cinema. My work combines emotions, spontaneity, volumes, movement, beat, eventually generating a space for reflection. All the aforementioned elements become one, building works that are against narrative and linearity.
My images come from a specific movement: from side to side, from center to periphery, in and out of focus – one moving and one still. Trying to reach a specific moment, I create a unique dynamic, a twist that is impossible to catch.
