Yossi Breger | And there was evening And there was morning, One day
And there was evening And there was morning, One day
The exhibition presents 159 photos, all new, in various formats, taken since 2007 in various places around the world—Tel Aviv, Berlin, Cologne, Havana, Paris, Brussels, Rome, Beijing, Stockholm—in the course of daily life. The photos—of landscapes, buildings, spaces, objects, people—tell a story of being in front of a thing, the fundamental things that form the infrastructure of human environment.
They are precise and thoughtful, articulated in pictorial, emotional and classical formal language; their accumulation creates a general conceptual model of a life story and a world, time–space relations constructed by light and revealing a personal and sensual touch with elements of nature and culture. Yossi Breger (b. France, 1960), recipient of the 1996 Nathan Gottesdiener Foundation Israeli Art Prize, is a senior lecturer at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design MFA Program and Department of Photography, which he headed during 2000–2006.
