Bio

Oded Wagenstein (1986) graduated both in sociology and anthropology at the Faculty of Social Science and in Film and TV at the Faculty of Art, both from Tel Aviv University.

Oded taught himself to use the camera at a young age as a platform to explore his fears and obsessions. Aging and our lost fight against time are main themes in his work. His images and articles have been published in numerous international platforms, both in print and digital, such as the BBC and the National Geographic.

Oded believes in sharing and ever-expanding knowledge. He attends professional masterclasses and gives ones. He has published three books, and he is also an instructor at the largest photography school in the Middle East (Galitz School of Photography). As a photography instructor, he teaches both Jews and Muslims to use their cameras as a bridge between them and as a personal platform to share their stories, hopes, and fears.
