tom cohen http://thehazir.deviantart.com 1. When did you realize that photography was your passion? Photography and arts was always in the background of my life. My father had a big passion for photography and as a young boy i was constantly exposed to this particular form of art. As kids, me and my younger sister , we used to make lots of photograms in my dad’s darkroom. It was only a matter of time for me to finally hold my first camera 2. When did you start photograph with film? At the age of 15 I bought a small 3MP digital camera. It was an awful camera but i loved it. First i was documenting everything, shooting stuff without really thinking. About a year later i started taking photography a bit more seriously and my 3MP sony wasn’t good enough anymore to my needs, I remember going through my dad’s stuff and find his faithful Pentax K1000. I immediately fell for it and i guess that’s where it all started. 3. What is your main inspiration? The whole world gives me inspiration, sometimes it’s the smallest things that push me to create. I believe that the secret is not what you see, it’s how you look at things. 4. If you have to photograph in one location, where it would be? The Moon! kinda out there and unrealistic I know, but when I look at all those NASA photographs from the 1969 moon landing I get this sad feeling, I wish I was there. 5. Favorite roll of film. It’s hard pointing out only one roll of film. I really love lomography’s greys (lady & earl grey) and my latest passion are tungsten films.

6. List of cameras and which one is your favorite? Pentax Spotmatic II, Kiev 19, Kowa/Six, Lomography fisheye, Praktica Super TL, Zorki-4, Zenit 12XP and Topcon Wink S. It’s really hard choosing, but if I’ll had to point out only one I guess I’d say that, at this moment, the Kiev 19 is my favourite 7. One thing you really love to shot? Cats! they never get boring. 8. Is analog photography changed you in some way? Of course, when shooting with an analog camera as a opposed to digital one, you cannot afford taking lots of pictures and then choosing the best ones, every frame counts! So, with the constant chase after that one amazing frame, I noticed that my whole way of looking at the world changed. I started viewing the world through the camera lense, even when I’m walking around without any camera. Small details and the way things are positioned in spaces became more noticable for me, and I love it. 9. What was the craziest thing you shoot? Once I took a picture of a dead-run-over cat, his intestines and internal organs were spread on the road. As a big animal lover and an owner of four cats, taking this photo was really intense for me. 10. Do you take your camera to everywhere? Yes, can’t get out my house without at least one camera in my bag.

Tal bedrack 1. When did you realize that photography was your passion? Since I’m too lazy for painting, I had to find myself a way to communicate my ideas. I first came to realize photography was the perfect tool for me, when traveling In Thailand – the ability to catch the essence of a place was something I couldn’t resist, and was totally taken by the medium. 2. When did you start photograph with film? I started taking pictures when digital photography was only a rumor – sometimes in the mid 90’s. After a few years of shooting film, I had to switch to digital if I wanted to make a living out of it, so I did. I came back to shooting film exclusively only when I found out that the digital medium was slowly killing my creativity 3. What is your main inspiration? I find great interest in places where nature interacts with human. I have a tendency to become spiritual when I stand in specific places and try to connect and capture the vibe I feel. 4. If you have to photograph in one location, where it would be? Outside. 5. Favorite roll of film. Every kind of emulsion has its strength and weaknesses. I particularly like Kodak’s Ektar for color and Kodak’s Tmax for BW. I have very little experience with slide film, but whenever I shoot it, I am always in total amazement.

6. List of cameras and which one is your favorite? My cameras: Medium format: Mamiya 645e, hasselblad ELM. 35 mm: Nikon f60, Praktica MTL3. I like all of them! If I’m pressed against the wall, I would pick the Hasselblad as my favorite in terms of image quality – the Planar lens is magical! 7. One thing you really love to shot? My daughter! But that’s too personal for publishing. The next favorite thing must be landscape. I love the search after the magical and divine elements in nature. 8. Is analog photography changed you in some way? Analog photography made me slow down and be more patient and reflective. I love the restrictions that are part of the medium, and the fact that I can’t review my picture in real time. 9. What was the craziest thing you shoot? Myself! 10. Do you take your camera to everywhere? No. I take my camera only when I get out taking pictures. I don’t photograph all the time. What I love about film is that you don’t end up with endless amount of pictures. My photography sessions are few and I take them seriously.
