Who I am

Einat Klein

Traveler and Photographer

Einat Klein


I am a journalist and a photographer, and my passion lies in the plane of their intersection. I need to be there, to understand what’s really going on and to capture it. From a morning prayer to a sunset in the desert, from the middle east to the wild wild west, I’m in the search of the perfect shot. My interests in photography cover nature, ethnography, religion and wherever something exciting is going on.

My job is a photography, editorial writing, organizing and guiding photo tours around the world. I work with international photo agencies, and mass media, including National Geographic, Afisha, Yediot Achronot and many others. I also co-authored Israel Travel Guide and participated in photography exhibitions around the world.

“אני עיתונאית וצלמת והתשוקה שלי היא במישור המפגש בין שני העיסוקים הללו. אני צריכה להיות במקום ההתרחשות כדי להבין מה באמת קורה וללכוד את הרגע. מתפילת בוקר לשקיעה במדבר, מהמזרח התיכון למערב הפרוע – אני כל הזמן בחיפושים אחר התמונה המושלמת. תחומי העניין שלי הם צילום חדשותי, אתנוגרפיה, דתות וכל מקום בו מתרחשים ארועים מעניינים”



What I do


I have two M.A.’s – first in international journalism and second in Middle East history. For more than 10 years I’ve been working with various international publishers and publishing materials about the countries where I live and visit, about my travels and just my observations of people in the most remote corners of the world. My favorite journals to work with are National Geographic, Afisha, Yedioth Ahronoth and many others. I’m always open for new ideas, so if you are an editor of a journal or a newspaper, drop me a line! Hopefully, we can come up with a new exciting project.


After I loved to write, I started to love photography. For me it’s one more way to know and describe the world. After a little while, photography for me stopped simply adding to my stories and became something bigger, something with its own value. Among my photo-projects are Middle East conflicts, the lost tribes of Ethiopia, secret Jewish night prayers, ancient monuments of human civilizations and many more. Today I’d be glad to do a commercial shooting anywhere in the world. My works are published in the world’s largest journals such as National Geographic and take part in personal and joint exhibitions.


Most of the year I spend travelling. I’m based both in Tel Aviv and San Francisco, and I cruise between them, stopping here and there, most frequently in Africa and Asia. I write and shoot about my favorite countries, and also guide ethno- and photo-tours in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. At any moment, I’m ready to pack my suitcase and go to a new trip, new shooting or take my group to some distant exotic spot. When I leave, I always take my camera and when I get back, my luggage is bursting with the souvenirs for my favorite side project, the Travel Shop


These are some of my works. I update this section constantly, so stop by anytime for the new projects!
