My name is Oriela Margalit and I work as a freelance photographer. I was born in Rochester, New York and now I live and work in Israel. At the age of twenty-one I studied photography at the renowned art college Wizo, Haifa. Back then everyone used films but when I graduated I stopped working with that technique and since then I was trying to explore and find an alternative technique in order to create my art, as well as in different disciplines like weaving, knitting and quilting. Later in my life I studied jewelry and started working at that field for fifteen years, especially with gold and silver.
All of the above equipped me with different perspectives on art in general and specifically on visual art. Along the years I developed a unique point of view which merged all my previous knowledge into a special whole.
A few years ago, when I discovered digital photography, I fell in love, and since then I work in that field. I take photos and I manipulate them while processing them digitally.
I have a real passion for design and I try, as much as I can, to use my love for design in my works. As a person I am very emotional, therefore I like very strong colors, as you can see in my works.
At some point in my life I realized that in order to truly express myself I have to use nature and random objects as components, in that way I can pour my ideas into the picture while maintaining its origins.
I am happy to present you a small part of my collection, I hope you will enjoy it.
