WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY?
Israel

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE BFA PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM AT PARSON’S AND HOW’S IT GOING?

What attracted me to the program was the fact that Parsons’ photo program is a young yet quite up to date program with a contemporary agenda. It’s been going well for me. A great benefit is that I have the freedom to experiment in the program, a fact which I do not take for granted.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CLASS AND WHY?
Independent study, because you can choose a faculty to work with. I feel for me the one on one format is the best way to improve my skills and knowledge.

 

HOW DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
I have been dealing with photography for more than 10 years and it is a question I still can’t answer until today.

 

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN TEN YEARS?WHAT ARE YOUR PRIMARY GOALS?
I don’t know what will happen tomorrow so I cant really make any plans. In my point view there is something healthy to keep this question open. My primary goal is to be able to make a living out of my projects and my artwork.

 

WHAT KINDS OF THINGS SPARK YOUR IDEAS?
Failures. 

 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU AS AN ARTIST? AND WHAT ARTISTS HAVE INFLUENCED YOU THE MOST?
I get excited whenever I come to a new place, a new environment. At the moment I am looking at Bruce Nauman’s works and some minimalist artists such as Carl Andre and Robert Morris.
