Gabriel Benaim

We are pleased to see that our “best in show” artist from Houston’s FotoFest has a new gallery opening.

Strolling, leisurely meandering like a flaneur, Benaim captures this city that was founded 100 years ago. Using a large-format camera, Benaim presents us near perfectly produced silver gelatin contact prints. And this in itself is a breath of fresh air given the current confusion within the production of contemporary photography. Almost like a moment of silence in the midst of a
noisy performance, Benaim’s images are calm, unhurried; photographs that pull the brakes on the race that is our urban life.

Walter Keller

Our congratulations and best wishes for a great exhibit success go out to Gabriel. Please note: He also has an article appearing shortly in Photonews (German). "Tel Aviv at 100" portfolio has also been included in the Center for Fine Art Photography’s Portfolio Showcase vol. 4.  A lot going on with this photographer.
