Work and live in Tel-Aviv & Hertzeliya, Israel.
Working as a freelance photographer .

Some words about me and the works:
The one thing in photography which interests me the most is testing boundaries and finding basic and fundamental characteristics that separates different areas and subjects, both in the visual level and in the philosophical level.
I am taking real life scenes that are transferred to the surreal. In my work I'm trying to give a new meaning to the scene.
By taking the scene out of its contexts, some time with computer techniques,
I bring the audience into my surreal world and into his or her own imagination.
