Felix Lupa is a street and documentary photographer born in Ukraine, the then Soviet union, and moved with his family to Israel. He got acquainted with photography through his father who used to develop his prints at home.
As both parents needed to work to secure their future in the new country, Felix found himself mostly left alone at home. Being a curious child he preferred wandering the streets of the new place. Soon he understood the laws and the people who inhabited it. It was then he developed an eye for the drama of life that keeps happening.
His street photographs showcase myriad of human emotions, witty juxtapositions, and funny comparisons of his subject elements.Wildly different from his street photographs his documentary works are uncanny and compassionate expressions for the unfortunate and forgotten beings of this world.
“Photography for me is much more than the means to record impressions from my personal life, or the life of the society in which I live. For me, photography serves as a central, mental, balancing point in the midst of all other things that demand my attention in daily life. It is a haven, an island of sanity in which I am always glad to take refuge from an insane world.”
