About Shimon Hameiri : From the early age of 13, Shimon has found growing interest and curiosity in photography. While acquiring his higher education in the fields of physics, optometry and art, he has developed his interest in holography combining this unique field with arts. The first years of his exposure to the theory of holography were devoted mainly to research at laboratories in the United Kingdom. During the 80s, Shimon has started his own independent creation of holograms which, till today, leads his way of life. He is active in various laboratories around the world researching the field, working on holograms within the domains of art, industry and advertisement. Shimon Hameiri is a part of a group of holographers which has harnessed the field of holography to the creation of art.
Shimon Hameiris wide range of activities includes: Exhibitions – for the last 25 years, his works of art have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in which he uncovers a bit of the fascination hidden within the art of holography. Teaching and lecturing - sessions are composed according to the audience, considering its specific characteristics. This is why these sessions are appealing and appropriate for each and any kind of audience, ranging from professionals and experts to young children, from lectures at universities to those given at social meetings. Creating holograms – as an artist, Shimon Hameiri brings forth his ideas and aspirations as can be seen in his works. He applies the cutting edge technological developments in the process of creating holograms. He can create holograms on specific subjects by special order. Shimon also combines deferent aspects of art, creating mixed works of media.

Dialog As curator and director of the for Man and Living World Museum in Ramat Gan, I have followed Shimon Hameiri's oeuvre in its process for two decades, and see in his works the process of technology becoming a means of artistic expression. Shimon's first works were interesting experimentations that examined the range of holography capability, mainly in the realm of third dimensional expression. In the passage of time, Shimon began to choose the objects for photography in such a way that the end result from using holography would be an artistic statement from his standpoint as an artist. The transition to colored holography and combination of computerized work broadened possibilities; and Shimon could increasingly focus on art, with holography serving him like a brush and color in the hands of a painter.

Dialog between 2-D and 3-D Images – Illusion or Reality "So what is life? Is it all false imagination, illusion, passing shadow, unfounded make-believe? Every achievement is nothing but a dream since all of life is a dream; and what are dreams but dreams." ("Life is a Dream", Pedro Kalderon de la Barca). A hologram is like magic. It creates an illusion. On a 2 dimensional surface the object appears in its 3 dimensions up to the point where it is almost possible to touch it like a realistic, concrete object. For many years the artist Shimon Hameiri has been engaged in photography. "As one who began to photograph at the age of thirteen, the hologram constituted a means to actualize ideas in different dimensions. As a brush in the hand of the painter, I make use of the laser and lenses in the laboratory and feel fortunate to be able to realize the dream, create and walk on an illuminated path. At present Shimon is counted among a very small group of artists that have harnessed the science of holography for artistic oeuvre. The area of his endeavor is broad and includes execution of works on request, exhibitions, advertisement and lectures. Sol Lenzini
Guy Olami – the curator of A Different Look Photography exhibition describes: …The exhibition A Different Look presents Shimons Photography to the wide public. His view of the world is reflected through the eye of the camera and his imagination which accompanies him wherever he goes. Shimon paints with his camera creating unexpected and surprising realities… He captures moments of tranquility and romance. The water dances and skies are singing a symphony of notes, vineyards float and flowers shine in the early morning sun. A close look raises questions such as: Is this a reflection? What is inside and what is out? Is it a gloomy sunset or maybe moments before sunrise? Is this reality or just an illusion? His camera stimulates the imagination… 2010
