Raya was born in Israel. When she was 10, she moved to Paris.
With her first small job, she bought her first camera. A few boring jobs later she bought a more serious camera and developed an irresistible passion for creating stories that keep her awake at night. Her imagination and creative direction caught the eye of a Parisian fashion editor. In Paris, she worked for more than 15 years in the fashion industry, with prestigious magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, Dansk, and luxury brands such as Cartier and Sephora.
Raya is a multi-award-winning photographer. She won the International Fashion Photography Festival in Cannes (France), has been named Master Hasselblad and her work has been exposed in Paris, London, Beijing, Dubai, and New York.
