His striking foreign beauty, his carved Moorish features, his black hair and olive skin, made him seem as though plucked from some wild fantasy... In Yassin, Itai Doron follows the eponymous hand- balancing acrobat from trailer park to circus tent, in this bewitching collection of photographs. Blending death-defying masculinity with innocence and sensitivity, Doron captures a fleeting, mesmeric summer in the life of the Moroccan boy wonder.Included in the volume is a foreword by the artist, alongside text by acclaimed photographer Joseph Szabo.

About the Author
After a childhood filled with visits to the movies and stories told to him by his mother about its stars, Itai Doron produces work strongly influenced by cinema. Having worked as a visual artist using media as varied as photographs, photo-collages, video, and audio-visual installations, in 2004 he wrote and directed his first short feature film, The Trouble with Thomas Cruise, starring horror-movie legend Linda Hayden.
Itai Doron was born in Tel Aviv in 1967. Following his graduation from Goldsmiths College of Art, London, in 1993, he exhibited at the White Cube Gallery in London, and concurrently showed a series of his large-scale installations at Canary Wharf. Doron has since participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan, Israel and the United States. He lives and works in London.
