Youval Hai

by Daniela Engelberg | 15.06.17

Jaffa-born Youval Hai uses photography as a medium to document his fascination for ordinary elements—showing us the world through his own lens. Hai’s photographs capture things that are often missed, exploring light in new forms and finding meaning in the things that others can’t see.

Along with his latest solo exhibition, Dust & Scratches, curator Nogah Davidson conveyed how his works are ‘the photographs of a man who walks everywhere with a camera, documenting his life intensively.’

Youval spent some of his childhood growing up in Boston, where he found himself captivated by his Dad’s Nikkormat camera from the 70s. ‘I think that living abroad made me a nostalgic person. I became sensitive to all the things I was missing from home—sights, smells, sounds—and wanted to document things before they disappeared.’

Inspired by bits and moments with his wife and children, previous relationships, human phenomenons and everyday observations, Hai has gathered an alternative kind of photographic truth.
