Hidden Opening to the Stream's Soul
On the Banks of the Yarkon, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 2005

Moments of connection between people and nature are brought through a peeping hole. The hole is almost like a mistake in the door (located instead of a screw). The images are moving behind the door, in and out as if breathing.

 

 


Elyasaf Kowner uses his camera to document everyday events, with minimal editing. His point of reference is Walter Benjamin's Flaneur, the man-about-town. Single figures and couples from the crux of most of his scenes. The camera freezes their movement in the crowd. Kowner's photography tends to focus on behavioral gestures, and provides another stratum to the familiar Yarkon landscape.
