photographer , artist, lecturer of photography and image processing, a cultural researcher at academic & artistic framework and social activist.

I use the language and principles of photography in order to test this, often by breaking the indexical quality of the medium . This question is expressed in three solo exhibitions presented so far, as well as additional works not yet shown , in several different ways.
Photography lecturer Expertise : cultural contexts of contemporary photography , technical aspects of digital photography , image processing , calibration technologies and digital printing.
Social Activity : Over the years I had initiated a number of social projects in order to try helping the underprivileged , such as photography courses for mentally frail , photography courses for the population of disadvantaged neighborhoods , photography workshops for youth at risk in cooperation with the elderly. I also take part in a discussion panel between Israeli - Palestinian - German cultures , in order to bridge over the disagreements and try to break the circle of agony
