Selected Works

Eitan Vitkon was born in 1967, in a small village in the south of Israel. Lived and worked in NYC.

During his studies, he was fascinated by photographic possibilities, and later he turned his hobby into a profession. He has been working as a photographer for over 15 years, exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions, e.g. on Israeli identity, and has become an internationally sought-after artist. His works are shown in popular museums, galleries and in private collections.
Vitkon’s photographs and video art are about memory, subject, perception, and time. The longer one looks, the stronger becomes the emotional attachment to the observed, in a positive or perhaps negative way. The perception may distort, the memory changes, it may rest on certain details.

In his artworks, time could be reversed or stretched, or it simply stands still. Seen through the technologically sharpened or alienated eye, the natural components as well as human experiences appear almost detached from context, thus extracting fragility and vulnerability. Vitkon’s large-format works are captivating due to their high precision and strong aesthetics.
