Photographer at work - Tsafit Canyon, Negev, Israel
Israeli photographer Amatsia Raanan resides in Raanana, Israel.
Self-taught, he entered the field of extensive photography in 1995.
Since 2004, Raanan has exhibited his works in exhibitions held in Israel, New York, Boston and across Canada. His recent exhibit, ”Not At First Sight – Israeli Landscape”, has become an official traveling exhibit, sponsored by Israel's Ministry Of Foreign Affairs.
By means of his images and the lectures he gives, Raanan demonstrates his insights and conveys thought-provoking and humorous messages on life and the world.
He devotes special attention to the abstract nature of manmade and nature creations.
Raanan's artworks are characterized by a desire to "see beyond" the obvious, while revealing the world's beauty, searching for the extraordinary and exploring the astounding phenomenon of life on earth.
