Shifra Levyathan is an award-winning fine art photographer, her symbolic urban photography portrays complex layers of life and reality. Driven by a deep-seated love for the urban environment and an acute eye for beauty, the Israel born artist captures the majesty of urban landscapes in stunning photographs, digitally altering them to showcase her perception and her creative spirit.

Fine Art Photography

For Levyathan, the camera is her canvas, and digital software is her palette. Her works may be brilliant in color and lighting or grounded and monochromatic. Light plays a vital part in each of her pieces,as it is reflected or refracted by the surrounding environment. It is a representation of harmony and orderliness in an otherwise bustling vicinity. Her digital alterations highlight otherwise invisible aspects that give insight on social, cultural and sometimes economic facets of an urban setting.

Through her work, Levyathan changes our biased view of the urban environment as an antagonist to environmental preservation. She champions the integration of urban life with nature in a harmonious and mutually beneficial pact.

l love the city, its  people and it’s Architecture. The high-rise buildings with glass and chrome create wonderful distorted reflections.. People are intriguing with their colorful personalities and actions. The city has everything for me – Architecture, People and even Nature.When l stroll in the streets with my camera anywhere in the world, l try to capture moments and episodes that will never come back.

 “When l discovered the digital camera and the software to go with, l became addicted to this medium and its vast possibilities. The photograph for me is like the canvas for a painter: I add or subtract from the photograph and create what I see in my mind’s eye. My photographs reflect my moods, and life around me, be it private or general.Even though it is difficult today to create something totally new, still every artist has something unique only to him. “-
