About

I am a staff photographer at the major Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, and was previously a senior photographer at the Israeli press photo agency Flash90

I completed a BA in Art History and Humanities at Carleton University, in Ottawa, and a diploma in Photojournalism at Loyalist College, in Belleville, Ontario.

My work appears regularly in various Israeli media outlets and has appeared in international publications including National Geographic, The New Yorker, Maclean's, Focus Magazine, and more. Awards include second place in the NPPA Best Published Picture Story category in 2016, and I won 7 consecutive years in different categories at the Local Testimony photojournalism competition that is exhibited alongside the World Press exhibition at the Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv.

 

My documentary work usually focuses on questions of identity and a sense of belonging to a place, to the land, as portrayed through the point of view of individuals as well as communities: How do we define a place, home, and how does that place define our identity? Telling stories that relate to these questions is my own sense of belonging.

Currently based in Tel Aviv, Israel. I am available for assignment.
