Eugene Studio was a commercial photography studio I opened following my experiences working for other head shot studios in New York City.  Opening my own studio permitted me to expand upon the kind of work I did, beyond head shots, and to diversify my client base.  I worked for the fashion industry, magazines, and newspapers, locally and abroad.

This book is more about the concepts I tried to develop; a reflection on the social condition in relation to my daily work.

Yechiam Gal is a conceptual artist and educator currently living in the village of Catskill, NY, where he also has his studio. Mr. Gal has taught at a number of highly respected institutions, including the School of Visual Arts, in Manhattan, NY; Camera Obscura, in Tel Aviv, Israel; and, for the last 18 years, at Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn, NY. His professional career spans more than 32 years of experience in various aspects of media production. Much of his time and creative energies have been devoted to the experimental exploration of new technology within the realm of modern art, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary media and approaches to art as part of a larger investigation into the creative process.
