Amir Yatziv (b. 1972, Israel) is an artist and photographer living and working in Ghent and Berlin. Much of Yatziv’s work centers on Israel and Israeli history, archeology and culture. Yatziv often employs unconventional photographic techniques for his work, such as heat sensitive cameras, various filters, graphic processing and animation. These visual and technological means allow Yatziv to explore the architectural and social phenomena that shape Israeli collective consciousness. Yatziv is a graduate of the computer science program at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya and the Bezalel Academy of Art, Jerusalem. He has held solo exhibitions in Germany and Israel, as well as numerous group exhibitions around the world. Among the awards and grants he received are the German DAAD award; the Polish Institute award; the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sport Art Encouragement Prize; and the Igal Ahuvi prize for a promising artist in 2013.
