In these urban landscapes we find animals in unexpected places. The animals occupy the spaces as if it was their natural habitat. The images are, of course, manipulated and constructed from at least three separate images.
The idea of placing exotic animals in a city environment stems from my interest in the fight for new territories that us humans are increasingly involved in. But humans still have to live side by side with the other species on this earth, and somehow we have to find a way to live together. I have no final answer to this conflict, but I find the theme intellectually and visually stimulating.

When my daughter Alison was born, in the tradition of a new parent, I began to photograph her, initially in a separate and private body of work. However, in the process of documenting Alison's growth, I developed a passionate interest in human relationships and capturing intimate moments in the lives of family and friends.
A good look around will reveal the variety of materials that surrounds us wherever we turn, in part noble-precious stones, silver and gold. In part valuable and necessary and then – some are useless. Among the latter, are all materials and elements that terminated their purpose, their reason of existence and thus became worthless objects' almost transparent, scrap. Yoav Kotik looks at them and sees the best raw materials for his design.
