Orna Naor, street photographer from Tel Aviv, Israel.
In my work I'm trying to tell stories that will evoke emotional reaction. Whether it's a single image or a series, street or documentary, I believe that what touches me will touch others, as we all share a common humanity.
My work has been featured in many exhibitions across the world and in Israel (including Local Testimony, The Miami Street Photography Festival, London Street Photography Festival, and Streets Sans Frontier), and has been published in various photography magazines, such as Shades of Grey and Israeli Lens.
