Coming Soon, 2008-2014, Natan Dvir

“Coming Soon” Natan Dvir’s series of photographs taken in New York City, is a critique of the era of omnipresent advertising in which we live. In the background, gigantic temporary posters in loud colours announce the opening of a new shop, while the pedestrians and street vendors in the foreground become passive spectators to their own city, subjected to its advertising. The images have a flamboyant aesthetic, and become dynamic thanks to the artist’s subtle framing and juxtaposition of elements.

 

Natan Dvir (1972, Nahariya, IL), actuellement basé à New York, est un photographe israélien diplômé de l’Université de Tel Aviv et de l’Ecole d’arts visuels de New York. Il a déjà exposé en Europe, en Amérique du Sud, en Israël et aux États-Unis, notamment au Museum of Fine Arts de Houston en 2011.
