Gal Harpaz, Israel, 1971, is a photographer that uses polaroids to make his long and stretched images. Gal calls these images Polaramas which are several polaroids put together to make one image. Besides using this technique when travelling around the world, he also uses it on probably his most precious subject; his son Theo. His son is not only in many of his Polaramas, but also in a series called Theo-Roids where he documents the life of Theo. In his series Wood, he makes stories with polaroids, mounted on wood and laquered. The following images come from Polaramas: Los Angeles, Travel and Theo and from Wood.

Elinor Carrucci was born on June 11th 1971 and is an Israel American photographer. She was born in Jerusalem where she served in the israeli army for two years, however she then moved on and became a member of the faculty in photography at the school of visual arts and design in 1995.
She has spent her photographic career recording the intimate moments of three generations of her family. No area or space of her home life is off limits to her which i find truly fascinating and engaging. Her photographs she produces are very intimate and quite personal at times. When you look at her photographs you feel like you are stepping into her home life and you can feel and sense the emotions and feelings going on around you. These images, as revealing as they are, complete with nudity, raw human relationships and buckets full of emotion allow the viewer to personally step into the life of her and her family.
While going through her photographs i have been thinking about the task she has set on picbod which i am going to try and do. I have decided i want to try and create a narrative where the viewer to my photographs are let personally into my routine and life. I have decided to shoot in black and white because i don’t want the surrounding colours to distract the viewers from the photographs i am planning on taking. The idea i have at the moment is to shoot my fairly ridgid routine before i go to bed taking the veiwer from the moment i start to get ready to the moment when i finally do go to bed.
