Tal Ben Avi - 10 Art Competition
I practice direct photography, gazing at prosaic sights with intent of creating clear images out of them. At the same time, my photography seeks to capture the image just before it disintegrates, before it becomes a texture or a surface. In many of my photographs the image is established at the very midst of the disintegration process. The body of work is created solely through analog and chemical procedures, working with cameras in medium formats and different types of films and development procedures. Working in this manner, with chemical and analog procedures, I gain limitations that allow me to pause in front of objects photographed before and after I photograph them, If I choose to do so.
