Michael Benari was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and subsequently grew up in New York City. Benari’s professional background is in science and medicine, but from childhood days, he was fascinated by imagery and cameras.

Michael Benari has exhibited domesticaly and internationally.

“Photography is my way of being in the world, it allows me to give personal expression to my living experience, and it connects me with a long and beautiful artistic tradition”.

“Manhattan Project"

Forrest Old, Owner, Red Filter Gallery states:

           " In his new series “Manhattan Project”, the artist Michael Benari offers his unique interpretation of the New York City urban landscape, captured from 2013 to 2015. Drawing from various artistic traditions including Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, and Conceptualism, this body of work fuses these approaches into a complicated web of dramatic black and white images. In this collection of photographs, the artist finds new expression using the grid format, combining a set of six images into a singe print. This presentation expands the traditional single image format, and offers a uniquely fresh form of expression."

"Manhattan Project" is available for viewing at http://www.redfiltergallery.com from September 1  through September 30, 2015.

It’s time to bust out the torn up jeans, Chuck Taylors and your favorite band T-Shirt because Scott Nichols Gallery has brought the funk, good vibes and raw energy to their newest exhibit.

Scott Nichols Gallery is pleased to present It’s Only Rock and Roll, a collection of photographs cataloguing some of the most influential figures in rock and roll. Throughout its history rock music has been characterized by a willingness to

and expanded the medium.

This dynamic range of subjects highlights rock music as a medium wildly open to artistic interpretation. Just as every musician offers a unique perspective, the exhibition presents a variety of individual viewpoints. Whether creating iconic album covers, capturing legendary performances or the private moments in between, the photographers featured in It’s Only Rock and Roll 
offer /provide a window into a genre of music that has captivated listeners for generations.

Featuring photographs by Jim Marshall, Ebet Roberts, Michael Zagaris, Baron Wolman, Linda McCartney, Bob Gruen, Brad Temkin, William Coupon, Bob Seidemann, Scott Palmer, Andy Freeberg, Johnny Ace, and others.
