Roei Greenberg (b.1985) is a London based artist, currently studying at the Royal College of Art (MA photography 2018-2020).
He grew up in Kibbutz Yiftach in the north of Israel and later moved to Tel Aviv, where he graduated from Minshar Art College (BA Photography) in 2013.
Greenberg’s work is in constant search for intersections between geography, history and biography. Using large format camera and film, His work invites a forensic reading and create a multi layered photographic perspective; pictorial and luring, yet tinged with underlying ideological tones, inviting a critical reading of the territory he choose to portray.
For many years, his work has dealt with the Israeli space and narrative while taking repetitive journeys along its borders, and confronting his complex emotions toward his “homeland”. Ambiguity runs through his works and sews them together to form a constant dialogue between the mundane and the sublime.
He has been the recipient of many awards, recognitions and nominations, amongst them are The Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Voies Off Awards, The Discovery Award, The Prix Levallois, Critical Mass, Meitar Photography Award, Local Testimony, Magnum Photography Awards, and the Sony World Photography Awards.
Greenberg’s work has been showcased in solo and group exhibitions including: Aperture Gallery, NYC; South London Gallery, London; Leeds Art Gallery; The Benaki Museum, Athens and The Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv…
His works are kept in private collections worldwide.
