about ephman

ephraim diament

photographer / general misfit

yeah, that's really me down there. the self-portrait was taken the morning after i celebrated a birthday on New Years Day 2015. the irony was that i wasn't even hungover.  but the foto does represent the body of my work well.

in 1976 my dad gave me his old camera and loaded it with some black and white film. i was six and off to israel we went. being small had its advantages. the visitors to my cousin's air force base had their cameras were confiscated. i walked out of there with some of my best work. and i've had a camera with me ever since.

taking photographs of things that people don't notice, or choose not to notice is what i do. it's the reason i'll never shoot a bar mitzvah.
