  • Dear Helyn,

    Pixiport brings you established and upcoming photographers this month.

    Ben Arieh

    Born in Geneva,Switzerland 1926. In Israel since 1948.Photographer for 28 years at the Faculty of Architecture,Technion-Haifa. Ben-Arieh works mainly with the methode of photomontage.His photographs are composed of a number of negatives,which were taken at various locations and times,and were assembled by him into final prints in the darkroom. In the artist's pictures there frequently appear female nude motives, which seem to connect themselves with imaginary scenery. The result is the creation of a differently reality, which emerges from the unconscious and is related with the world of myths and archetypes. On the other hand, in his portrait pictures,as well as in the nude,the artist aims to express the personality of the models, as well as his own inner truth

    For me, photography as a two-dimensional surface,which translates three dimensional reality,created in me a feeling of deficiency. I wanted to express an additional dimension,a fourth,not of time - but of spirit: not only in the psychological/ philosophical sphere - but something deeper,that emerges from the subconscious. During the course of time,I understood that "association"is the way for me,in which the soul hints a complex contents of awareness. So it became clear to me that the camera by itself with her (objective!)lens,is not objective at all- in the same way that the result, the photograph,is but the personal interpretation of the photographer.

    From here the way was short to the medium of photomontage,which is the combination of various elements in one picture. This between them produces interactions,affinity, dialogue and the creation of a new reality. for me photomontage is the expression of mood, of spirit scenery, where all the elements meet: fire,earth,water and air - and Woman who contains all these inside her. In my photomontages frequently appears the image of the female nude. This is the subject that corresponds to my sensuality, but also to something deeper that is linked to cosmic nature, to universal mythes and archetypes. Nude photography is in fact a portrait of more intimacy, allowing direct expressions,without masks - both of the personality of the model as well as that of the photographer. Woman,more than Man,has roots into life. Eve is the mother of all life ! Therefore I agree with the the French Photographer Jeanloup Sieff who said:" I do not believe in God, but the Woman is the proof of His existence."

    "Black and White Photography is one imagery way of loosing reality for the benefit of a more personal point of view, nostalgic touch and the shaping of a universal environment. Black and White Photography might add a strong image, timeless lives to make it even stronger. Although I mostly create my Images in colors, I can't resist the beauty and charms of the Black and White's."- Dubi Roman
