Meital (Tula) is an Israeli photographer, born in 1976, based in Texas since 2021.
She found her way into photography in her early forties with no official background, but it was clear to her that she has an inexplicable urge to present truth to the world.
In her personal and social documentary she always tries to distill "the being" of the person standing in front of her.
Her first meaningful documentation was of Sahman Alchoush, a 3-year-old palestinian toddler from Hebron who died of Neuroblastoma. A documentation who later on won an international competition on the subject Transformation of The 8th International Photography Festival PHOTO IS: RAEL, in Kikar Hamediba, Tel Aviv-Israel.
Her encounter with Sahman's family, made her knowledge very strong that she has the ability to withstand a complex human situation and asked for photography topics that she want to focus on.
In her work she tries to present a greater story of social and personal issues, through intimate and personal stories of people she meets and get to know along her way.
These delicate stories always tell her something about herself as a human and as a creator.
