Itamar Freed

VOLTA NY 2017 BOOTH C3


Itamar Freed Born in 1987 in Manhattan, NY, Freed received his B.F.A from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2012. He is currently doing his M.F.A at the Royal College of Arts, Photography Program, London. Freed conjoins direct photography that depicts artificial, staged figures with realistic representations of portraits and landscapes. The regions of photography in which he works move between three expanses: the Israeli wilderness & nature, the Natural History Museum, New York and his home studio in Israel. The encounter between the three territories – the wild, the cultured and the staged, creates a deceptive sensation. Freed’s photographic aesthetics draw upon a return to the classic painting of art history, seeking to create for it a kind of contemporary photographic variation. Through the use of color, natural illumination at its extremes, via open composition and multiple vanishing points that simultaneously draw the observer’s eye to different foci of various events, the borders between dream and wakening are blurred, Freed’s photographic ambience exists as if in a threshold zone, beyond the bounds of specific time and place. Using the photography medium to preserve, to freeze, to grasp life and to seize time. Freed’s work has been showcased in solo exhibitions in the Ramat-Gan Museum of Art, Israel, and Feinberg Projects Gallery in Tel Aviv. His works were also shown in “NordArt 2016”, International Art Exhibition, Büdelsdorf, Germany, Musrara Gallery, Jerusalem, the Bezalel Gallery, Jerusalem etc. Freed has been the winner of the 2016 Clore - Bezalel Scholarship & a full Grant for a Master’s degree at the Royal College of Arts, London and the 2012 “EPSON” first prize for excellence in the art of photography. Freed’s works are in private and public collections worldwide including the Lauren and Mitchell Presser Photography Collection, USA and the Clore Collection, London, UK and other private collections in Israel and abroad.

We look forward to seeing you at Volta NY Booth C3
