About Mati

Currently in the United States but ordinarily based in the Middle East, I am a freelance photojournalist contributing to NurPhoto. My photographs have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, Al Jazeera, Bild, Le Monde, El Pais, The Globe & Mail, Haaretz, Getty Images, Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Deutsche Welle, United Press International, Bloomberg News Photos, New York Post, Mother Jones, Foreign Policy, DPA-Picture Alliance, The Jerusalem Post, Al-Quds, Monocle, National Geographic News, Archaeology, and Ma’an Images. I also served as the British Embassy-Tel Aviv’s official photographer for nearly a decade, and shoot routinely for other diplomatic missions, NGOs and private interests. I was selected as a 2020-2022 Harvard University RCPI Fellow to conduct a long-term documentary photography project. I was awarded a Rory Peck Trust Training Bursary in 2013 to participate in an intensive hostile-environment training course at Columbia Journalism School. In 2014, I was certified as a battlefield first aid provider by RISC Training.
