“You can dream and design the most beautiful place in the world, but it takes people to make that dream a reality,” Walt Disney.
It is creative genius Walt Disney, a self made entrepreneur, animator, among other proficiencies, who’s quote defines Israeli photographer/artist Itzik Binyonsky, a resident of Tel Aviv who turns his travels around Israel and abroad through his lens, from a reality into a dream.
Based in Ramat Gan, a city on the middle-coast of Israel, Itzik is well versed in the various photography techniques, and as a true artist, he examines the subject in front of him and notices well the composition that suits the nature of his work. In turn he presents original and interesting works.
He is a self-taught photographer, and has always loved looking at the world through the lens. In the beginning of his career, he sought abstract images in nature, but over the years he became more specialized in nature photography and he strives to connect with landscapes, lakes and Israeli vegetation and show it from a slightly different angle. These experiences have exposed Binyonsky to unique and surprising encounters.
Binyonsky’s year of photography presents the eternity inherent in nature and man’s reaction to it. It focuses on the beauty that can be found in the depletion processes of landscapes and sites.
Man is present in the face of the wonders of nature. It is reminiscent of the art of the romantic current in the 19th century, where man’s smallness in relation to the greatness of God and creation was emphasized. But in contrast to the character of the person who is aware of his vulnerability to the romantic current, the nature photographed by Itzik Binyonsky is conducted with gusto while ignoring his vulnerability.
Binyonsky’s frames are strong, breathtaking, but at the same time thoughtful, illuminating, and very unique. Itzik is an artist who is true to himself and confident in his independent and unique way.
As a nature photographer, he stays, experiences the environment in which he is and also photographs …: “The camera serves as an incentive for me to be where all the senses occur and operate. My main ambition is to integrate into nature, observe the forces of nature, connect to monuments, and thus try and create Communication, to feel equal among equals and to capture the intimate moment. “
In the words of the American writer G.D. Salinger: “The artist’s only interest is to create some kind of wholeness in his terms – and not anyone’s.” (Franny and Zoe). Binyonsky’s photographs have perfection. Aesthetics, innovation – the perfection of nature.
