Roi Kuper

Born in 1956 in Israel.

Roi Kuper is a graduate of Hadassah College and the Midrasha School of Art in Ramat Hasharon. He is the winner of many awards for art and photography in Israel and around the world, including the Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s Leon Constantiner Award for Israeli photography in 2006, the Israel Museum’s Enrique Kavlin Life Achievement Award for Photography (2006), the Ministry of Education and Culture Award in 2004, and the Jaffin Prize of the America–Israel Cultural Foundation in 2002.

Kuper is one of the most prominent representatives of the generation of photographers who led the flourishing of Israeli photography in the 1990s. His photographs, which present the landscapes of the country, carry with them an introverted and sensitive personal statement, and the tension created in them evokes in the viewer a sense of beginning and end.
