Artist Bio

Amir Viskin was born on a communal farm in Israel, grew up in Mexico City, and  returned to Israel as a young adult, where he completed his degree in Architecture and  Urban Planning – from the Israel Institute of Technology.


He was introduced to the joys  of photography as a teenager by his father, who was a movie producer. His family  travelled extensively, and cameras were always present. He is fluent in Spanish and  Hebrew.

After practicing architecture in Israel for several years, Viskin emigrated to the US in  1989. While his day to day work has taken him away from architecture, photography  continues to be his primary creative outlet.

Viskin is inspired by the interplay of shapes, color, abstraction and composition, as well  as the potential of photography to expose the beauty of natural and human-made  landscapes. His photographs convey a sense of wonder and optimism.


Viskin has studied photography in Ateliers 29 and 33 at the Griffin Museum of  Photography, and at the deCordova Museum, with Meg Birnbaum and Emily Belz. He has shown his work in several group and juried shows at venues  including the Griffin, Lexington, Concord, and Watertown MA public libraries, and the Jewish  Art Collaborative. His work is held in several private collections.
