At first glance, Yigal Ozeri may seem like a photographer, but the Israeli artist is actually a painter specializing in photo-realistic art. Ozeri's is a hyper-realistic painter who specializes in painting young girls clothed and semi-nude.

Ozeri create his photo-realistic portraits by first taking a picture of his models. The photos are then loaded onto Ozeri's computer where he edits the photos and then reprints them. The photos are his guide as he repaints their exact likeness using oil paint and a massive canvas. The quality of the paintings speak for themselves, with no noticeable detail that would suggest that these works are anything other than actual photographs. The young women featured in these paintings look every bit as alive and carefree as they must have when Ozeri first shot them with his camera.
