I am 28 years old, newly married and live in Haifa, Israel. BFA graduate of the NB Haifa School of Design. I am a professional photographer and artist whose work derives from this medium. Also, I teach photography in high school. I was born in a small town in the northern Galilee, a peaceful city. When I was 14, a hard incident had struck my family. My father had passed away and left me and my mother alone at home. This is an important part of my life, both as an adult and as an artist. This event influenced the way I approach my art and the way I express my feelings through it.

It is a tool for making human connections, an instrument that reflects realty and at the...

My experience with art began in childhood, studying the art in the many books in our house, and looking long at the art of my ancestors on the walls. As my mother was a visual artist, I would also witness the creative process from early on within her studio.

Later taking a bachelor's degree in studio art from the University of Ottawa, Canada, I have since pursued further studies including art history, philosophy of art and aesthetics, as well as the sciences in parallel with my experimental photographic and digital artistic activity. Statement: While I have long admired the imagery of classical photography, I further...

Returning in March from a six-month commission in London to isolate with my girlfriend Rosie, I faced almost no employment or income, and like many across the country, this crisis hit hard, causing feelings of worry, fear, isolation and loneliness.
