New York, August 4, 2016: XiMT Photography announces Matan Tzinamon’s first solo exhibition in New York, at LICHTUNDFIRE, 175 Rivington Street, in the Lower East Side, Manhattan.
This exhibition displays a selection of images that capture a broad, yet distinct, current social issue – “Communication.” Lechitzat Yadaim means “a handshake” in Hebrew, and with this exhibition Matan Tzinamon is expressing the issue of a lack of communication in today’s world, offering a simple solution: let your eyes do the handshaking, and open a window for more genuine communication. Tzinamon believes that the future of communication depends on preserving eye contact.
Matan Tzinamon, born and raised in Israel, explains that the increased dependence on communication via electronic devices, and decrease of communication through the eyes or in person is one of the root causes of the state our world is in today. Eye contact, our most basic form of communication, has been substituted by devices that have become the most common way to run away from our illusionary fears.
