My vision as a photographer is to capture the complexity of cultures and the ever-changing conditions which influence them. We are able to stand still in space but we must keep on moving in time. Light is the thread that connects the temporal dimension of time to the material dimension of space. Photography, in my view, is the most powerful tool that can make time hold its course.
I have been photographing for the past 45 years, ever since I was introduced to the camera. My work is varied and expands between visual images that frame compositions in a traditional way as well as creative experimentation of images. In addition to a continued practice of travel in search of new themes to photograph, I also dedicated the past few years to research and developed a new printing method using a handmade loom which is inserted to an adapted printer. Not just an observer, my images aim to dust away the fog from human pathos and expose our human similarities. I am always on the hunt for fresh and authentic images while I continue to research and experiment with various printing materials and methods.
I have developed a new media for printing. A long process of trial and error, research and creation. This is the result
I embarked on following the animal trails of Apollonia at all hours of the day to capture the amazing natural beauty existing there. Concurrently, I began leading a wide social campaign to stop the construction plan and to find a way to preserve nature.
As part of the fundraising process to support the Apollonia Eco park dream, I set up an exhibition to sell some of the photographs shot in Apollonia to fund the lengthy court process. It was a great success
I try to always be involved with at least one conservation project in which I dedicate both time and funding. It is important because we will leave very little nature for our children and we need to find ways to preserve more of our delicate planet.
To me a photograph is to capture the undiscernible…
An international businessman born in Israel, traveled through more than 100 countries, by foot, car, plane (as a pilot), mountain bike & scuba diving - photographing nature and its wildlife inhabitants. Raised in Kenya, the land of his heart, he developed a deep passion for nature and photography, seeking to capture the marvels of nature.
Rami has always sought to find the perfect balance between his professional career and the nourishment of his spirit, which to him means to protect and capture nature’s beauty.
In March 2017 - as part of a social campaign, to preserve a rare ecosystem in Israel, the Apollonia Fields, he led alongside a group of nature lovers, a long and difficult battle to defeat a plan to turn nature into cement. As part of the battle, Rami exhibited at the Tirosh Gallery in Herzliya, Israel, portions of his “The Secrets of Apolonia” work.
