Visions of Israel | About
Yosef Symonds has been involved in photography for most of his life. From a start as a 7-year-old with a bellows camera in Sydney, Australia, to the digital age in Israel to where he moved in 1981.

In recent years he has focused on capturing personal experiences of life, landscape and architecture in Israel.

These include historic and archaeological sites in Israel such as the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) and the Temple Mount, architecture, street photography, still life, Jewish festivals, Israeli landscapes and nature. Celebrations of life-cycle events are of particular interest, as are Jewish religious practices.

He is always experimenting with different techniques to show subjects that can be seen differently, or are commonly completely overlooked.A particular joy for him is shooting at bar/bat mitzvahs, britot, and other celebrations where he typically feels a part of the family joy.

His work has appeared in many commercial displays, such as office exhibits and product marketing.
