Arnon was born in Jerusalem, Israel, and is an entrepreneur in the high tech industry. Since 2003, he has dedicated time to fine-art photography and exhibiting his work.

 

Arnon’s work deals primarily with the human condition and the boundary between documentary and fiction. His images capture people in transitory moments of introspection, vulnerability, and heart-searching. His urban landscapes document places where people have personalized and humanized their urban surroundings.

 

Arnon often blurs the line between documentary and staged photography. The series “Reaching Out” was created by documenting objects thrown into the frame; moments are recorded where gravity, time, and chance come together in surreal juxtaposition. These visual interruptions in the landscape play with scale and break the surface of photographic reality.

 

Arnon studied, among others, with Adi Ness, Miki Kratsman, and Sheffy Bleier.

BA Electrical Engineering, Technion

MA Cultural Studies, OUI
