Lili Gelman is an Argentinian photographer. After graduating in Architecture from the University of Buenos Aires, she worked as a designer while also attending research seminars about the significance and effects of image making. In 1998, she began to explore the use of photography as a means of artistic expression.
Birds is a series belonging to larger body of work about the natural world in which we live. The subjects are explored through a particular style where the photographer plays with the subject’s exposure to create certain patterns, which become a dialogue between the visual and the fading.
Lili Gelman’s work has been published in catalogues, magazines as well as book covers. Various works have also been included in private collections in Argentina, Brazil, and Israel including the National Maritime Museum, as well as collections in the U.S.A. She has exhibited worldwide taking part in group as well as solo shows. After living in Haifa in Israel for 6 years, she decided to return to Buenos Aires in 2008, where she now teaches Visual Arts and Communications.
