Elinor Milchan is a self-taught photographer and video artist. She examines the phenomenology of light through time, and visually captures its passage and the experience that remains of it.  Critics from the LACMA and Art in Art America have praised the inventiveness of her unique technique, describing it as “liberating the medium”, and opening  “up the interstices of light”, reminding “us that the essential of photography is light itself.” *Milchan’s exhibitions and work have been featured and reviewed in various international art publications, and included in contemporary art auctions. Her work is part of many private and public collections, including the Tel Aviv Museum, and has received support for public art collaborations and installations by the likes of large corporations such as MTV, JPMorgan/Chase, NewsCorp/20th Century Fox, Leaf, Bezalel, UBS, Credit Suisse, Silverstein Properties, BCRE-US and Africa-Israel.

She has created numerous special projects including live video performances with orchestra, temporary and permanent public installations both in the States and abroad.

Elinor Milchan taught at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. She is the co-founder of Artea Projects, co-curating public art projects. Learn more about her work by clicking here.
