Roni River, Autodidact.
Grew up in both Israel and South Africa. She is now located in Israel and is a freelance photographer specializing in her own self portraits aswell as client work
Coming from an anxiety filled background, Roni found it hard to face the world some days and her self-portraits allowed her to step out of her safety zone. It has enabled her to interact with people in a way she never managed to before. In the process she has been able to reach herself and come to find a brave women lives inside of her.
" She has an amazing eye and a breathtaking library of self-portraits. Her work ranges from the playful to pensive, perfectly representing the complex young woman she is."
