Sivan Askayo

by Telavivian | 31.01.17

Tel Aviv and New York-based photographer Sivan Askayo masters one of the many genres in art, as she documents the world in four basic components: food, portraits, interiors and landscape.

Askayo’s passion for photography stemmed at a very young age, but it wasn’t until her mid-30s that she assisted the International Center of Photography and shifted her career as a media supervisor for freelance travel photography.

Like her client list, Askayo’s work is extensive. With a sharp eye, she’s captured a wide range of scenery—from local hotel The Norman’s PR to yummy dishes for foodies. Askayo likes to create her “own interpretation to the story” and believes the photographer works as “the ‘eyes’ for the editor.”

Below are a selection from some of Sivan Askayo’s favorite works.
