Born in Haifa, Israel.
Guy Yechiely, an artist and a photographer, graduated in 2011 from the Department of Photography at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.
From a first sight taken at his works it is obvious that he is attracted towards classicism, beauty and aesthetics, while adopting a formal approach to the art of photography.
Yechiely often uses artificial light to stage situations, so as to achieve and emphasize drama in the photographs.
Guy’s work harmonizes with western art of the 18 – 19 centuries, with neo-classical painters like Ingres or Jacques-Louis David and with other classical iconic artists, simultaneously, he strives to capture diverse aspects of each subject, and treats complex issues, like Orientalism, Politics and Middle Eastern culture, with a fresh approach.
