The amazing photographs of Shlomi Nissim

Israeli photographer Shlomi Nissim has an uncanny eye for the beauty that lies within the surreal. His incredible photos express the feeling of the joy of being right in the middle of nature. He is able to create fairy tale and magical moments in time that will draw you in and leave you spellbound. He creates a mesmerizing dynamic between people and nature that is unique and unlike anything you have seen before in photography.

Shlomi was born in Israel on 1972 and as a child he used to spend many hours outdoors and in nature. He dreamed of being a National Geographic photographer when he grew up. When he was 13 years, his family won a raffle where the prize was a bicycle. But his parents who were so understanding of their son's love of nature and his dreams sold the bicycle and got him his first camera instead. That was just the beginning for Shlomi whose passion for photography has only grown as the years have gone by. He is fascinated by powerful scenes that surround us and gravitates towards the ones that touch our feelings on the first impression.

His love of nature has been with him ever since he can remember. He was always fascinated by photos and movies of the wars between the white man and the Native American Indians as a child. But he also felt a lot pain in seeing how modernization had taken over nature. This became the very basis of his photography of documentary and staged scenes depicting his aspirations for humankind and nature or in other words going back to the beginning of time. He also seems to have a special ability to show the deep connection between women and animals.

In his own words he describes his photography techniques and vision; "My love for nature has followed me since I remember myself, with its magical force, powerful predators, untouched jungles and captivating stories and fairy tales such as Mowgly and Tarzan.

While I stay faithful to the beauty and aestetics of art and am also inspired by paintings and cinema, my works are a reflection of my despair over man's conquest over nature. All of my works are photography media and not digital art."

Enjoy the beautiful examples of his artistic sense of photography below. We would like to thank Shlomi for allowing us the opportunity to share his story and works with all of you.

    I love all the pictures EXCEPT the ones where the animals are carried on the shoulders and draped around the neck like a trophy or a fur - which just negates the whole "connection" element for me. Keep it more natural, photographers, please!!!!

  12. She definitely has the gift, it is hard for a lot of dogs to allow someone to hold a paw :-) TY White Wolf great way to start a day!
