I was born in 1976 and raised in Sassa, a small Kibbutz in Northern Israel. At the age of 22, I lived in London, where I was accepted to apprentice for the well known architectural photographer Helene Binet. It was during this time that I discovered my true passion for photography. After returning to Israel, I studied photography at Hadassah College in Jerusalem.  Questions of memory, identity and journey concern my works. I am using photography, video and performance art in order to disassemble and rebuild a story. One of the main themes in my work throughout the years is the continuous exploration of my origins, approaching physical and metaphorical landscapes. These are examined and revealed in an ambivalent atmosphere which is aesthetically beautiful, but at the same time exposes a world that holds a secret, which becomes my own fantasy playground.
