Boaz Yiftach

Boaz set off his career trying to coax a Persian rug into looking like ocean waves. His photography, like his life, doesn’t fall in to the conventional mould. He has a very whimsical view of the world and doesn’t hesitate to express it in his art. Some of his work may shock the viewer with its daring and explicit symbolism, nevertheless, he transforms the ordinary into something quirky and unusual. His works immediately draw the viewer into his world of multiple associations. E.g – Does the iconic blond with the lollipop really need to beautify herself further? Is she really the sweetheart that the lollipop implies?

His appreciation for and enthusiasm with the female form, in all her guises is abundantly clear. His deceptively simple images lovingly explore and embrace contemporary womanhood, with its complex multifaceted identities.(see lady with banana hairdo). While many of the photographs can be grouped into specific themes, some are seperate examples of playfulness. His passion for the architectural form is also reflected in his numerous photographs of familiar and unfamiliar buildings in Israel and abroad. He has great admiration for all artistic creations, from a simple bench at a bus station (see LA Guardia bus station) to a grandiose lit up sky scraper.

Boaz, like many artists, is constantly toying with different ideas and directions. An avid learner, he is often motivated by surprising his audience with the unlikely choices he makes. Boaz’s photography will take the viewer on an enchanting visual journey where the viewer can expect the unexpected. From a fresh view on the sculpted female form to fresh new angles on architecture, the visual works will always leave the viewer contemplating the how, where, and why of the works.
