Need Your Vote

Vaclav Cigler , a Czeck artist, is displayed at the Litvak Gallery (in Tel Aviv) and is also the subject of a photo contest.

Here are my photos. 10 in all…summarizing 2 visits to the gallery

The 10-11 hours spent there, really enabled me to experience Cigler’s amazing work.

Most of my photographs are of a single piece… ‘ Jacob’s Ladder ‘.

The pictures are therefore named Jacob’s Ladder #1,#2 etc

To get more of a painterly effect, I used my Canon 5D mark2 camera
with the Canon 100mm L macro lens.Such a lens has a limited range of focus and depth of field, in close-up mode

The photos are an attempt to show a personal vision.

Above is ‘ Jacob’s Ladder #8’. The actual work ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ is visible on the right, at the back.

The picture above has a hint (bottom right) of another of Cigler’s works.

In Hebrew it’s called, ‘ יחסים 1 ‘ . In English I guess the equivalent is, ‘ Relationship 1’

The last picture,on the right, focusses on Cigler’s , ‘Descending entrance gate’. In Hebrew ‘ שער כניסה יורד

Despite that, I have named it, ‘Jacob’s Ladder #10″

To qualify for the competition, I need support of whoever views these pictures.

Access the gallery competition site  http://hf.litvakgallery.co.il/ , sign up, look me up (user name שלמה טייץ)  and vote.

Thanks ever so much, Shlomo
