ABOUT ME

" The interpretation of the term “Wholeness” in the vocabulary of the artist Amir Chodorov, is linked to a different and additional aspect of his artistic creation. He is looking for the misunderstood and the unknown and in spite of the photographed elements which are known and familiar to us, the artist raises questions whether the photographed location is indeed familiar to us. Chodorov is true to himself as an artist and trusts the unique path he has taken. He uses his camera as extension to his brain, on his way to achieve originality and uniqueness "

Chodorov’s “Puzzle Patent”

Chodorov has his very own Trademark (TM) – “Wholeness Photography” ,unique style and method  . By taking multiple pictures of the same view (sometimes up to 1,000 pieces), the creation then undergoes a unique method of collaging, creating an accurate image of a bigger view like it was never seen before.

BREAKING THROUGH THE “VISUAL ATTENTION” BARRIER.

What you see is determined by what you attend to at any given time. The environment presents far more perceptual information than can ever be effectively processed by the brain.

Visual attention barrier forces our brain to select the information that is most relevant to ongoing behavior, especially in locations that contain lots of objects and noises.
Complexity and information overload characterize almost every visual environment. Given that fact, our perceptual system in our brain can’t build the accurate “wholeness” view of all the objects together. As a photographer, I tried for a long time to create a method that will enable me to create such “Wholeness Photography”, a method that integrates physical objects, as well as emotional, hidden beauty.

In 2017, after 40 years of experience, I invented a self-method that breaks our visual attention barrier. My “puzzle” patent creates such a “wholeness view”, a view that I was seeking for my entire professional life.

My Insights

First insight – Shooting must be done from and by my brain, not from the camera viewfinder.

Second insight– Before shooting, I’m staying at the location for a while, to give my brain some time to study the physical objects – Line shape, forms and color pigments. Emotional filling atmosphere such as: People, religion, culture, and energy.

Third insight – Find the best “Point of view” that is covering all objects together.

These three insights mentioned above, draws a pattern in my mind that creates the integration of the objects. And these are the phases followed:

Execution phase – From the selected point of view, I’m shooting hundreds of photos in different angles while not looking through the camera viewfinder, but following my eyes to cover the whole brain schema.

Final process – Organizing the photos together like a puzzle, creating my “Wholeness Photography” of that same location.

As written about my artwork:“Amir’s puzzle consecrates history, yet at the same time, he creates a new and fresh contemporary reality. His artwork is distinguished by the geometric and sometimes abstract characters, which are born from a certain emotional situation or an imaginary event that the artist decides to embellish with various layers of impressive coloring.

His artwork emphasizes the victory of the spirit, inspiration and beams of light he found within himself”.
