Camera Obscura

This exhibition presents a photographic process that is carried out with the two oldest techniques in photography: the photogram and the pinhole camera.

The idea of this exhibition is to show how the images themselves change over the years – from the classic landscapes of nature and cities – (Jerusalem and the Negev desert) where the dimension of time can really be expressed in the image during long exposure. Through modern urban landscapes (Paris, Hamburg, Amsterdam and New York) where the photographer begins to change reality by deforming the lines of architecture and creating movements, lines and shapes that do not really exist. Ending with completely abstract images made with different energies and ways of working – the 4 elements series.
