Wonderland: A Small New World12/11/2014
Imagine yourself a wonderful new world, one so tiny, it is barely visible to the naked eye: A world of magical landscapes, colors and shapes, populated by strange, fascinating creatures, just like in a science-fiction or a fantasy movie. Now imagine that not only this world is not fictional, Hollywoodish, or Photoshopped, it also fits in the palm of your hands, hiding right under your feet, anywhere, and in reach - from the backyard through the parks, fields, and even inside your homes.
Nadav Bagim has created a magical wonderland of giant toadstools, pastel skies and brightly-colored flora in which insects and other critters roam.
The Wonderland series presents a remarkable creativity and originality and by using a unique but rather simple and elegant artificial lighting and household objects, from vegetables to plastic bags, Nadav was able to capture all those photos in camera without digital manipulation.
In a miniature studio on his kitchen table, he captured praying mantises on mars, romantic snails kissing on a coconut hill, and lots of other surreal scenes. The series has been published in numerous magazines and websites all around the world.
In his presentation, 'A small new world', Nadav will open a hatch to this fascinating world, and will share with you how to create and document this hidden paradise using creativity and a lot of love for the little ones.
Nadav Bagim (a.k.a AimishBoy) is not going to write about himself in a third-person style as you would expect from these "about" sections. He will not present himself as a 33 year old who started as a Neuroscience student until he discovered that his real passion lay in the photography world. He will not mention that he is self-taught, because everybody is nowadays, and will not describe how he specializes in macro photography but also enjoys shooting many more objects and subjects that pop into his head - that you will be able to see for yourself in his galleries, lectures and workshops. However, the one thing Nadav is willing to write is a big Thank You, for taking the time to visit his site and view his photos. He surely hopes you will enjoy them.
