About Me

Maya Hed was born and raised in Los Angeles and moved to Israel in the late 90s, where she studied at the Kiryat Ono College of Photography. Maya specializes in portraiture, especially series of photographs captured over time. She uses natural lighting to capture genuine, raw emotion, and tell the subject’s story through their portrait. Maya showcased two solo exhibitions at the Israeli Opera and at the Hava Rosenberg gallery. Her work has appeared in print in several magazines and books. Maya also has extensive experience with film, and works as a freelance documentarian based in Tel-Aviv.
