Interview with Erez Davidi
by Abel Ibáñez G.
What camera and other tools did you use to shoot this photograph?
Tell us about the place and time when this photograph was taken. What were you doing there that day?
The photo was taken in Savannah GA on a trip with my parents, We wondered around the city when I spotted this old diner.
What do you like the most about this photograph and why?
I like the colors and its nostalgic feel.
Was there anything that you can consider an influence or source of inspiration to create this photo?
Not really. But I do like taking photos of old diners. Not sure really why, but it always makes me feel good visiting such places
Nothing too exciting happened during the process of making this photo except perhaps for the great smell in the diner. Too bad I didn’t stop there to eat.
For this photo, did you do something completely different to what you normally do for other photos?
I don’t really have a method for taking photos. I just take photos of whatever seems beautiful to me. It can be a person in the street, a flower or a diner.
Did you learn something during the process of shooting this photo?
That I love to wonder around without any goal.
Where and in which format would you like this photo to be exhibited?
I would love to see this photo printed.
I am an autodidact film photographer, based in Tel-Aviv. In my personal work I am drawn to spontaneous moments and “untouched” scenes and places. I love capturing the mundane and supposedly unimportant details of daily life.
