Diego Rosman is a documentary photographer based in Givatayim, Israel. His strong documentary style and approach comes from his passion for adventure-seeking and climbing, mainly focusing on capturing real personalities, real emotions and real events in artistic and memorable ways.
“Rock climbing – most people would associate it with danger, fear, adrenaline and outright foolishness. To the climbers, it hosts a vast array of experiences, physical challenges, spiritual journeys and good times spent with good friends. Rock climbing changed my life six years ago, making a quick shift between naive discovery and complete addiction. I have dedicated the past year documenting some of the most passionate and talented Israeli climbers who have been pushing their boundaries and inspiring others to do the same.
Climbing photography comes with its unique experiences and a dose of excitement and exposure. Hanging from a rope mid-air, a climbing photographer has to wait and calculate the precise moments, lighting and position to turn vision in to reality. The unique blend of different factors in climbing photography sometimes leads to failed attempts at realizing this vision, but just as often leads to new visions being realized in the moment.
For the most part, this project has been a journey of learning, discovery and realization but, at the same time, the shared experiences between climbers, the incredible social vibe at the crag and strong connection with nature all seem to have been just as significant.”
