My name is Gabi Ben-Avraham. I am 56 years old, and married with three children aged 26, 24 and 19. I work in a software company as IT manager and live in a quiet neighborhood of Tel Aviv, the city which I grew up in, have never left and is a part of me and my photography. I enjoy cinema and music, and during the 1980's photographed using film cameras. I then did not touch a camera for 20 years until I received a digital camera as a gift for my birthday from my wife 4 years ago. The rest is history....The Street is not a Studio. Sometimes I stand and wait for things to converge – a cyclist, a dancer, a child – moving along. Street Photography/Documentary is my favorite way of looking at the world. My camera has become an integral part of me and I cannot imagine myself without it. Everywhere I go I take it with me thinking 'maybe today will be my lucky day and I will take the photo of my life'. Some of my images have been exhibited as part of various exhibitions in Israel and Europe and a solo exhibition in the U.S and Cambodia as well as few newspapers, books, photographic magazines and websites. I am also a member of "Thestreetcollective" and "APF Collective" , street photography collectives.
