Sharon Yanai was born in Haifa, Israel in 1969. Since he was young he loved photography and visual arts and was always with a camera at hand. In the late 90's he started working as an amateur photographer volunteering for jobs including both video and stills photography. In 2005 he made his first documentary movie accompanying a group of Israeli educators for a journey of a life time to Poland. This movie marked a stage in his love to photography thanks to the gratitude and appreciation he got both in Israel and Poland.
