Guy Olami – the curator of “ A Different Look “ Photography exhibition describes: … The exhibition “A Different Look“ presents Shimon’s Photography to the wide public. His view of the world is reflected through the eye of the camera and his imagination which accompanies him wherever he goes. Shimon paints with his camera creating unexpected and surprising realities… He captures moments of tranquility and romance. The water dances and skies are singing a symphony of notes, vineyards float and flowers shine in the early morning sun. A close look raises questions such as: Is this a reflection? What is inside and what is out? Is it a gloomy sunset or maybe moments before sunrise? Is this reality or just an illusion? His camera stimulates the imagination… 2010
