Profotos Staff Evaluation:
The portfolio of Kobi Israel stands
out as one which resembles the work of some of photography's most influetntial
masters. Through his superior implementation of color, contrast, and composition,
Kobi masterfully produces photographs which seem to be otherworldy and
surreal in nature.
One of our favorites from Kobi's portfolio is the image on this page.
This image is a great representation of Kobi's overall style of superior
image quality. The composition lends itself to a feeling of otherworldliness
and mystery. We can make out the shapes of the people in the images, but
we cannot tell what they are doing, or where they are going. The "tunnel
vision" in this image, with just a liver of light seeping within
the center of the frame, adds to the intrigue and mysterious mood. Photographs
such as this one set a very contemplative mood for the viewer, which allows
the mind to roam freely while viewing the photograph. Very well done indeed!
This image is just a small representation of Kobi Israel's work, which
has won many awards and has been published in several magazines and periodicals
throughout Israel and abroad. Kobi's award-winning portfolio contains
many images, which are sure to open your mind and heart to contemplation
and deep searching. Enjoy this portfolio, it is among the best in the
