Street Photo of the week by Ilan Ben Yehuda
Ilan is a charismatic Street Photographer born and raised in Ramat – Gan, Israel. He is a graduate of the Tel Aviv Camera Obscura photography school and is also a scholar of philosophy.
Like many other Street Photographers, Ilan works in the Graphic arts industry, designing for fashion mostly. Together with his studies as a photographer and his graphic design experience, he has managed to master visual communication and visual interpretation skills that can be considered important assets to any Street Photographer.
Five years ago when Ilan Ben Yehuda started shooting Street more seriously he passionately looked for subjects such as drug addicts, homeless etc. His work was more documentary oriented. He has now changed his style and looks for surreal situations that are not necessarily classed as photojournalistic, documentary photos, but more as pure Street Photography images that aim to make the viewer wonder, question, think about what he/she is looking at. Photos with a hidden, deeper meaning.
Ilan is part of the “APF” international photography collective. An entity of Artphotofeature Magazine, the APF Collective features the work of 25 talented photographers from around the globe. Their goal is to provide a collective, balanced storytelling vision of the world we live in.
