in a different light. A photographer whose beautiful images compel the viewer
to sit back and take a deep breath." - Reuel Golden, PDN’s 30, 2003
Chosen as one of Photo District News’ thirty emerging photographers of 2003,
Avigail Schimmel's unique land and seascapes are infused with a keen awareness
of water, motion, and light. Whether in New York City and its environs, her
native Israel, or on her extensive travels, Schimmel produces arresting
portraits of her surroundings. With her remarkable eye, impeccable timing, and rich
color sense, Avigail brilliantly conveys her singular view of the world. The
subject of a solo exhibition at the Alice Austin House Museum on Staten
Island, and recently featured in The New York Times Magazine, as well as PDN,
NYArts, and O magazines, her photographs have been well received in the United
States and abroad.
