My love for photography started at the age of fourteen when I edited some existing photos that were already on my computer. Eventually I took my father’s compact digital camera and photographed flowers, landscapes and wildlife. I also did some self-portraits from time-to-time. It wasn't until I was halfway through my first year as a performance arts student in 2009 however, that I realised I actually wanted to be a photographer instead of an actress.
Photography is so much more than just capturing memorable moments for me. It is an art form that allows me to take the places I've been to and the things I've seen and combine these elements to make it my own. This is why I love being on the road with my camera in hand and exploring new places.
Each of these images are compilations of photographs taken from different backgrounds and places like Israel, South Africa and my studio. One thing they all have in common are the natural elements, because it is only when I'm away from the city and surrounded by mountains, trees, the ocean and animals that I get to experience complete peace. Because of this reason I find it fitting to include nature when composing my own dream world.
For the most part I like to keep my work fairly simple and realistic to some degree, which is why I rarely do something extreme when it comes to surrealism. This, to me, is the real illusion.
