Biography: Dubi Roman was born in Haifa in 1957. His art is deeply rooted in his family's spiritual history and geographical location. Roman's family has lived in the holy city of Zefat for five generations. Zefat, nestled in the mountains of Upper Galilee, is one of the four sacred Jewish cities, and was once the spiritual centre of Jewish life. Despite being plagued by earthquakes, which have raised the city several times, the faithful have always flocked to Zefat and continue to do so today. A cobble-stoned town where the orthodox synagogues co-exist with off beat artists' studios and galleries it is where his grandfather before him, Yitzchak Roman was a famous artist and sculptor. Although Dubi lived in the heart of this spiritual city, he constantly looked to nature for sustenance and searches for his own spiritual solace outside the city walls, amongst the landscape of Israel's trees, fields and flowers.
Inspired by impressionist painting, Roman developed his own unique photographic processes and techniques, an impressionistic way of expressing his own vision of nature through photography. "The technique I use - based on multiple exposures, changing planes of focus, soft focusing and scattered light - gives a romantic and impressionistic effect, colored in the colors of dreams. It became my path of expressing myself and a way of exposing my heart," he explains.
In the same way that the impressionist's major preoccupations were with the perception and recording of light and color, Dubi uses film to capture a greater awareness of light and color within the shifting pattern of the natural scene. "In general, I think the subconscious mind is a bit misty and out of focus," he says. "Lower definition seems to be a key element for the ability to capture deeply buried sights: our visual memories and deepest wishes or fears. In my opinion, we need to have sights with lower resolutions in order to make us listen more carefully to our inner voices." Established in Paris during the 1870's the impressionists' based their painting practice on a technique which was pioneered in Britain by Constable around 1813-17. Painting a picture, from start to finish from within the actual landscape, as opposed to simply making sketches and then completing the work when back in the studio, their new way of painting landscape and scenes of everyday life was developed predominantly in France by a group of artists including Monet, Degas, Renoir and Picasso. By deliberately manipulating the light that is allowed to reach his film, Dubi Roman can control its effect on the image, at the time of its original source.
As is the impressionists' way, Dubi Roman's images are created solely outdoors - from start to finish - deep in the Israel nature and its great landscapes. "I use nothing but traditional photography, no filters are used and no lab or computer manipulation is utilized."
