With Spatial Concepts, Yoram Roth enters new territory, focusing on elaborate compositions while maintaining his vision and approach towards nude photography. Whereas light previously interacted with the bodies in his works at the moment of photographing the picture, Roth wanted to surpass this point and extend the meaning and exposure of light in his pieces.
Inspired by the work of Italian 1960s avant-garde artists Lucio Fontana, Paolo Scheggi, and Enrico Castellani, often referred to as “Spatialists,” Roth started merging photography, sculpture, and modern manufacturing technology. Building on his previous work, Spatial Concepts emerges from Roth’s investigations into what happens to surfaces when light lands on ridges and openings, and his aim to create spaces beyond the typical flat piece of art on the wall.
Born in Berlin in 1968, Yoram completed his photography studies at Fordham University in 1990. Yoram has been making images his whole life, but did not commit to fine art photography until he left the USA and moved back to his hometown in 2007. He is the father of three sons, and continues to split his time between making art, building a photography collection, and leading a business in the photographic art world
