About me


I was born in Kibbutz Kfar Hamaccabi, Israel, in 1950. Combining my Creative Arts studies at the University of Haifa with Comparative Literature, I learned a lot about various forms of creative arts. While studying art, I dedicated myself to photography, and graduated with a final project on children photography.

Since 1988 I live in Doetinchem, The Netherlands, and work as a freelance photographer and painter. In my commercial work I fulfil commissioned assignments from individuals, organizations and companies (see the site in Dutch www.amitbar.nl).

For many years I have been exploring the relationship between painting and photography in my artistic work. I started to combine both forms, starting off with photo collages. Later, I was delighted to have found my passion in creating body paintings, as an expression of my love to these two forms of art (see ‘About body painting’).

You are welcome to share your opinion about my work with me, by signing my guestbook or by sending e-mail.

Thank you very much for your visit. I wish you lots of pleasure on my site!
