It is customary to say that a camera captures the real world; however, when the photographer is an artist, the image becomes a creation and is portrayed in fascinating, exciting and surprisingly beautiful manner. Yoel also possesses an amazing talent to grasp and record a fleeting moment. For example, a photo of his small son kissing the girl next door evokes the viewer's memory of the magical innocence of childhood.
Yoel says he has always been a dreamer. His photography interprets what he sees and thinks: a combination of reality and fantasy. Inspiration, imagination and an artistic ability to choose angles and exposures enable Yoel to create worlds in frame that tell stories.
For Yoel the camera is like a leech that extracts art from the environment The subject always inspires Yoel and result in a work of a art, be it a Sicilian shepherd riding a Vespa, a pious individual placing a message in the Wailing Wall, or a Romanian peasant bride standing in front of a dilapidated cabin.
His amazing photos are inevitably picturesque and present a colorful kaleidoscope of colors. The manner in which Yoel passes reality through a prism to produce artistic photography is exciting and unique. Each photo reveals an amazing combination of talent, imagination and calculated precision.
