His photographs don’t have a clear style and not stick to one particular genre. The only thing that distinguishes the work of Benary from hundreds of thousands of others is no staging. Gilad is a kind of urban romantic.
You should agree that to catch the desired angle and find something special in the outside world is as hard as for a soccer player to develop an intuition which will help him to score. Gilad Benari is always in the right place at the right time. He does not work with models. His models are ordinary people and animals, and his palette is composed of the colors of the city and his country. First look at his photos can be misleading. But if you look closer you will see there a story which just needs to be read. Gilad lives and works in Israel, although often travels around the world.
