I am a professional photographer, one who has spent her life in a mix of cultures.
I was born in a kibbutz in Israel. When I was three years old, my family moved to Belgium, where I lived until the end of high school, with the exception of one year when my family was in New York City.
I then went back to college in Israel, where I studied cinema and television
at the University of Tel Aviv. After another two years in Belgium, I moved once again to New York City, where I first lived in Chinatown, and eventually, on Roosevelt Island.
These days, I work primarily in the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, where concealment of femininity is an essential part of their way of life.
Women are not represented at all. Their very image is hidden from the gaze of any man outside of close family. A deep sense of mystery surrounds them.
I look for the unscripted, natural moments when the subjects are not posing
or even aware of me.
