My name is Tal Paz-Fridman, I am a photographer specializing in creative-documentary photography. To paraphrase the description of one of my favorite photographers, Sam Abell, my style of photography is documentary in the sense that I record the world around me. However, I feel my best work has transcendent qualities, starting at the documentary level yet open to interpretation on an aesthetic level.
I am inspired by many photographers but the following stand out (in no particular order):
Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jim Brandenburg, Micha Bar Am, Pete McBride, Reza, Sam Abell and William Albard Allard.
"Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop."
"My best work is often almost unconscious and occurs ahead of my ability to understand it."
“What we need is more people who specialize in the impossible.”
