State of Mind – portraits of Israeli authors

Keinan -intro

When I am doing portraiture I am not trying to represent a human being in its entirety.
 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 me a good verbal account of their thoughts on the creative process and I was hoping they will be less aware of the visual aspects of their own representation. At the same time I was also taking pictures of the plants in my garden – the two series fund each other in the editing process.
