Ilan Besor: Turning culture into an enduring brand..
(photo credit: INGRID FELDMAN)
There’s nothing like empathy to get your subject on your side, and then get the most out of their personality and fuse it into your work. Any photographer will tell you that.Flipping the pages of Ilan Besor’s new book, Ilan Besor Photographs Israeli Culture, you get the sense that the artist goes beyond empathy. In addition to the strikingly presented portraits there are a couple of textual excerpts – a brief one by the photographer and a slightly longer contribution from preeminent radio pop and rock-music show presenter Yoav Kutner.
