The JCC Manhattan has invited Nino Herman to exhibit a retrospective of his work in May 2016. This is not only the first time this work will displayed outside of Israel, but the first time Nino has ever exhibited a comprehensive retrospective of his entire career with all of its different facets. The exhibition juxtaposes historical work, contemporary street photography, and abstract landscapes to paint a rarely seen image of Israel.
One might not guess that these seductive and tender portraits and moody abstract landscapes were taken in controversial Israel: a place with so many extremes, so much insecurity, a place where the question of life itself cannot be taken for granted.We are in need of images such as this in the media.
“I find inspiration and charm in the simplest things in life. Photography embodies more than the final image. It is a platform to create, connect, and develop a relationship of trust. I ask for the subject’s trust, and they know they are being photographed, yet through my process their self-consciousness evaporates, leaving the honest and magical moment that I strive to capture.”
