Omri Shomer documents everyday life in Israel

Street photography in my opinion is one of the best way to portray the life of a city. Every place has its own energy, and the people who live there brings color to that place.

Omri Shomer, 42, picked up his first camera at the age of 13 and since he fell in love with photography.

“My love story with the camera began when my father bought an 8mm video camera, and he became obsessed with documenting everything. At the same time, I took still photographs with a 35mm pocket camera.

“I have been working as a copywriter in advertising agencies for seven years, but reached a stage where I felt I was missing something. Through my work with art directors, I had more and more contact with visual concepts, and this, in turn, stimulated my interest in photography in a more conscious fashion.

“After seven years, in which I only wrote and was under the sort of intense pressure that only an advertising agency can create, I decided I had had enough of writing.”
