A Jewish Israeli man, Machi was born in Italy to a Bulgarian father and a Polish-Libyan mother. He currently lives in New York.
As a mixture of many heritages, Machi finds it most suitable to be versatile in his photography.
Although a photojournalistic approach has been the best way for Machi to express himself, through travel, documentary, street and portraiture photography, he still finds great pleasure and accomplishment photographing engagement couples, products, events and editorial work.
Machi gained a new appreciation for things from the simple realization that not everything is beautiful, but beauty can be found in everything.
