Tal Ben Avi – 10 Art Competition
Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 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.
