About Yoav Friedländer
Yoav was born in Jerusalem and spent most of his life in his hometown, Maale Adummim. Between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, on a limestone hill at the edge of the Judean mountains, it shaped his perception of the world. During 3 years of mandatory service, he followed in his father's footsteps and became a paratrooper, later shifting to an administrative position which allowed him the time to further explore his love of photography. Yoav earned a B.A in Photography at Hadassah Academic College Jerusalem, and is currently in his last year of an MFA in photography at the School Of Visual Arts in New York. You can see more of his work on his website.
