Tel Aviv, Israel
I perform a kind of ritual, and this ritual creates a strong basis for a conditional reality, and this reality is like a salvation from the things that exist and terrify us, a kind of relief and a hiding place.
For me, to make photography is to look for an existence, a story in everything, to transform moments that I see, think, feel and dream into a visual representation. It is the reflection of my thoughts and experiences, my reaction and position towards different events. In this series there is a woman at some Sabbath day at her home alone.
Staged photography gives me more control to make the occurring more sharp, to build reality on the set like a sculptor, when you can feel every detail, where 1/60 sec. of exposure is transformed to something permanent. It’s like to try to compress all of life in one regular situation and to turn emotion and feeling into an object.
In my photography, distortion is used as a trauma, a shock, a pain that in still imagery becomes an open wound, a suspense that goes on and on. The uncomfortable situation and the position of the body takes away the secure, certainty sense of things, makes them more weak and vulnerable and allows them to open up.
