Horovitz, Nofar

” This series of photographs was taken while wandering around and observing playparks in central Israel. 
It was only a few years later that I came across this project while cleaning my dusty closet. I realized that  I was  unconsciously looking at myself through the lens, wondering through the playground with a growing feeling that something has to be documented, when actually, I was documenting bits of my own childhood. I knew that for sure once I noticed none of the photographs had children in it, the only child was me.”

My name is Nofar Horovitz. I was born in 1986. I am a photographer based in Israel. I am married and a mother of a 3.5 year old girl.

After completing my photography studies in “Camera Obscura” School of Art in Tel Aviv, I opened my own photography studio.  Photography for me is a remarkable tool that allows me to sculpt my vision into an image, I appreciate the necessity of light in the picture, and also the lack thereof.
In my observation of the world, I examine and focus on details that make up the greater picture, and at the same time, I skip various components, sometimes in a less controlled manner so as to leave gaps, which viewers can fill in according to their perspectives, thoughts, conclusions and observations of all components simultaneously.
In my view, I search for order, sharp lines and cleanliness, which for me empower the meaning of the final product.
