Digital fine art photography by Nissim Men
The art of Nissim Men is best to be described as exclusive compositions, of his unique photography combined with other digital image concepts.
Central Theme: Legacy
Legacy is leading in the work of Nissim Men.
Distinction is made in three catagories:
legacy of free spirit – Art by Nissim Men
legacy of emotions – People’s Portraits | Company’s Portraits
legacy of time & place – City Portraits
The category of legacy of the free spirit must be regarded as a legacy of the artist’s spirit in the moment. Work on the basis of own inspiration where digital fine art photography is processed with paint in which craftsmanship, precision, skills and expertise are the unique assets.
All other legacy compositions can be considered as a traveling experience:
through emotional moments in someone's life
by visual story telling about the highlights in the existence of an organization;
by digital fine art City Marketing photography; story telling in one detailed portrait: a walk through a city or a village along all prominent places and / or striking buildings;
