I use cameras as tools to produce subjective documents. They help me investigate the nature of perception and life in a human environment.
The issues that intrigue me lie below the surface—especially concerning the Self, its permanence & fluctuating identity/ies, its boundaries and complex relationships to space and time.
My current work explores the possibilities of double-exposure on film, a technique which produces a “hybridized” reality with a physical trace. I am also developing serial projects based on instant film (to try and capture the effects of micro-events as well as long-term change) and on the repeated portraits of my peers.
I was born in France and am now based in Netanya, Israel. My background is in the human & social sciences, with a PhD in Linguistics.
