State of Mind – portraits of Israeli authors

Keinan -intro

Can a photographic portrait represent a human being?
Today the photographic portrait is being used by different photographers to touch on a variety of subject matters. I started this project because I wanted to touch on two issues; I wanted explore the subject of representation and I wanted to learn about the creative process of other artists. I chose to work with Israeli authors because I thought they will be able to give a verbal account of their thoughts on the creative process and also because most of them are less aware of the visual aspects of their own representation. The images that you see came to be in the editing process.
