GABI BEN AVRAHAM
ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
I am 61 years old, and married with three children. I work in a software company and live in a quiet neighborhood of Tel Aviv, the city which I grew up in, have never left and is a part of me and my hobby - photography. I enjoy cinema and music, and during the 1980s I photographed using film cameras. I then did not touch a camera for 20 years until I received a digital camera as a gift for my birthday from my wife a few years ago. The rest is history…
After two years of stagnation and a few lockdowns due to covid-19, I went to the US on a family visit. I felt like a bird who finally flew out of its cage! This series "Journey of Freedom" depicts that wonderful feeling of freedom and expresses in a surrealistic manner the emotions of the people who went through covid -19, each of them in his own way.
