Oded Balilty is a Pulitzer Prize-winning Israeli photographer. Born and raised in Jerusalem, he has been a staff photographer for the Associated Press since 2002.
In 2007, he won the Pulitzer Prize for his photograph of a lone Jewish settler confronting Israeli security officers during the evacuation of a West Bank settlement outpost. Balilty lives in Tel Aviv and photographs current events and documentary features for AP in Israel, the Palestinian Territories and around the world. His work has been commissioned for editorial assignments by Time Magazine, National Geographic, and many others.
In recent years, Balilty has been working on personal projects focusing on the thin line between photojournalism and fine art. While these two styles appear drastically different, for Balilty, they inform one another. His fine art photography has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Israel and around the world.
