The Spirit of the I.D.F
Oren Cohen's dream was to be a photographer.
After years of serving in the IDF as an officer in an elite combat unit. Oren shed his uniform, and started shooting with a camera, rather than a gun. His passion was, and to this day remains, to document the daily events and faces that influence and forever change his beloved country, Israel. Cohen was a rising news photographer in Israel's capitol Jerusalem for several years, documenting bombing attacka and government officials, when they refined his dream and tapped into documentary photography, which he defines as "spontaneous, real and pose-free." For Cohen, this book combines documentry photography with his devotion, admiration and love to the Israeli Defense Forces. Oren holds in a BA in Photography, Film and TV from Hadassah University in Jerusalem.
