My name is Asaf Kliger and I'm a photographer and international artist. Taking photos is my way of telling stories, communicate feelings.I studied at Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem and I am represented by "Vision" Gallery in Jerusalem. My heart beats for good stories and my specialties are creative documentary and artistic wedding photography. For me photography is not a job, it is a way of life. It is that magical passion that time after time encourages me to pack my bag and go work in all sorts of locations all over the world. So far I have had the privilege to shoot weddings in the countryside of Russia, in Cyprus, at an island in Provence, on paradise beaches in Costa Rica, in the middle of nowhere in Chile, on an amazing farm in Colombia and in the old city of Jerusalem. I have exhibited my art in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Toronto, New York, Cape Town and Jerusalem. My art projects have also taken me to the forests of Sweden, the dirt roads of South America and the rice paddies of Thailand. Everywhere I go I capture the world as I see it - and there is so much to see.
