This series of large panorama landscapes captures landforms that surround a very distinct part of Nova Scotia.

 

Several contain remnants - some current, some far past their original usefulness - of early Acadian/Planter settlement in the Wolfville area.

'Color Matters'

Amir Lavon, Israel

Artist's Biography

"The main thing for me is that I'm happy that I've been able to work as a professional photographer. What is at the core of my work is, in essence, a meditation on being a human being".

Amir Lavon was born in the Israel and studied photography at the School of Fine and media Arts, graduating in 2005. In 2014 he received his BFA at Ohalo College. At MoMA he studied curating and collecting photography, urban photography, and the issue of seeing a photo.

Amir began photographing as a freelancer in 2005. His work from Israel, Europe and other countries attracted the attention of many magazines in 2005-2018. He was nominated to the agency SSP press the following summer, and became a full member in 2005.

Amir's worked on assignment for such publications as National Geographic, Index, Head-on, ND, Newsmedia, Private Times, The Fine Eye, SSP press, CIRCLE, SHOOT THE FRAME Magazine, galleries and, museums around the world .

Artist's Statement

My images are about my passions: the people, places and moments that touch my soul. My camera is a part of me and I shoot all the time. I enjoy portraiture, street photography, doco, and botanicals but basically shoot whatever catches my eye, (which is everything). I am a people-watcher and have always been interested in people, who they are, what they do, how they look, where they’re going, etc. Maybe knowing that I had a full-time career as a teacher will explain more of my art and who I am.  I have been told that I am a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves and I feel that I am a social worker with a camera. My camera is my voice and my mission is photo voice.

I am a wanderer, a wanderer and an inveterate people watcher. Maybe it comes from being somewhat introverted, but I would rather observe the people around me than have to interact with them. My camera affords me the opportunity to be intimate with strangers while maintaining my introverted cloak of invisibility. “Alone Among Millions” not only describes the people I photograph, it also describes me… the man behind the camera.
