Eliya Cohen

I am a cinematographer, photographer and artist.

Recently I relocated to Tassie (2018), and I am looking for jobs in the camera department, on dramas, commercials and documentaries. 

I am also freelancing as cinematographer and will also happily work independently as a shooter/producer/editor. 

I enjoy working on a diverse variety of projects, from drama films, documentary and music videos to video art and community projects. I am especially passionate about the environment, human rights, telling unheard stories, and working with communities and young people. 

Bio:

Most recently, Eliya graduated (2017) from the Australian Film Television and Radio School, with post graduate studies in Cinematography. In 2014 she graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts with 1st class honours from University of Sydney (SCA).  And in 2015, she was selected to exhibit her video installation ‘Love Eyes’ in Hatched: National Graduate Show (2015) at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, and in Emerging (2015) at the Gosford Regional Gallery.  In 2012 she worked for artist and photographer Ryan McGinley in New York City.
