Avi Farber

Avi Farber is a documentary photographer, wildland firefighter, wilderness medic, and woodfire ceramic artist based in the U.S.A. He studied philosophy at Bates College, ME, Digital Media Production at the Maine Media Workshops, and Spanish at the Universidad de Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina.

Working in clay, Avi creates installations, sculptures, and functional wares that explore natural processes. His work is raw and refined, subtle and gestural. Drawn to the moments that break through the distractions of daily life, Avi documents people in frontiers. His photos and video reveal a strong sense of place as seen from a quiet observer. He has coached extreme skiing, climbs, gardens, and explores the Saguaro out of his truck.

His ceramic work has been exhibited internationally, and his documentary photography of wildfires has been recognized by National Geographic magazine.
