London based - Israeli artist (b.1985)

 

I grew up on a Kibbutz, located on the northern Israeli border with Lebanon. In 2009 I moved to Tel Aviv, where I completed a BA Photography in 2013. After years of investigating the Israeli landscape, its geography, historical narratives and my own biography, I left Israel in 2018. In search for a new subject matter, I found myself once again drawn to questions of land and power, belonging and legitimacy...

 

My photographic practice is concerned with landscape as a complex intersection between culture, geography and autobiography. The effects of human activity on land, political borders and ecology are amongst the issues investigated in my work. The use of large format camera and film creates a multi-layered photographic perspective; pictorial and alluring yet seeking to disrupt traditional modes of landscape representation.
