Aviv Yaron has been practising Photography professionally – both commercially, and as an artist – since 1991. Starting as a Still Life Photographer, he then progressed with the advancements in digital imagery to find himself at the forefront of that technological revolution. Commercially, Aviv has immersed himself in providing visual effects photography for computer generated imagery – becoming an expert practitioner in both the analogue and the digital realms of image making. Both worlds have influenced his artistic endeavour, where he is in search of the direct contact with the photographic material and the intentions which motivate the creative process.
‘…My photography is about ritualizing ways of ‘contemplative seeing’. It is about responding to states of presence – resonating inner and outer landscapes whilst engaged in a ‘visual poetry’. At that moment, the camera is no longer separating the world from the photographer. To me, this is a ‘decisive observation’. It is both a psychological peak – a response to unconscious motivations – and a spiritual one, whereby the captured image contains both the subject and the photographer…’
