Rafael Fuchs is a photographer and filmmaker. In his personal work he remains independent, unconventional and personal as his self portraits in a war zone while doing his obligatory service as an israeli soldier in the occupied Lebanon in the 80's , or his controversial portraits he took in 9.11.2001 of random people who were watching the twin towers burning during those decisive moments of confusion, just before the towers collapsed.
Some of his subjects were: Burt Reynolds, Emily Watson, Beyonce, Colin Powell, and more.
However, Rafael has been playing the outsider throughout of his career.Rafael gained numerous awards by APA, Communication Arts, PDN, American Photo , Creativity magazine and more.
It was an organic transition for Rafael to open his gallery: “Fuchs Projects” in 2012 in Bushwick, Bklyn, NY, with the mission to create a hub for photography, and preserve, produce, create events and exhibit art works of emerging and mid-career local artists who are a part of the Bushwick art evolution and are creating challenging and educating works that are related especially to the photography media.
