Mati Gelman is a commercial and fine art photographer. He earned a Bachelors in Science in Biochemistry from the Technion - The Israeli Institute of Technology in Haifa and a Masters in Science in Chemistry from The Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv. Mati turned to photography after moving to New York City in 2016. Mostly self-taught, he continued his education at The International Center for Photography (ICP) and Pratt Institute in New York City.
Mati's images explore sexuality, queerness, and human integration with nature, sparking a sense of unease. Originally a chemist manipulating matter and molecules, Mati now manipulates pictures and pixels with a focus on accentuating that exploration.
