Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to?
Do you know?

Do you know where you're going to?
Diana Ross. 1975.


Hey. My name is Ilan Shiran. An amateur photographer who never studied photography in a formal setting. Throughout my life I was self-taught. I discovered photography as a child when I discovered international magazines such as National Geographic Time and Playboy. The magazines printed on fine chrome paper smelled of fragrances that I did not know. The wonderful color photographs had me staring and intrigued by each picture. Yes, also from advertisements. Through them I was exposed to distant worlds that I did not know existed. I was especially fascinated by the American culture as revealed to me through those photographs. Crowded cities, taxis, trains and planes and styles of clothing I did not know. Although about fifty years have passed since then, I have a desire to recreate those photographed moments with the help of the film imaging recipes of the Fujifilm company.
