Yael Bar Cohen is an Iceland-based photographer. She specializes in portraiture, fashion photography, conceptual art, and advertising in the photography and motion picture industry. 

Yael completed her degree in Bezalel Art and Design Academy as a fine art photographer in 2014 and is a member of Físl - The Icelandic Contemporary Photography Association.

Her aesthetic spaces result from conceptual ideas that meet the visual, blurring lines between reality, memory and imagination through accurately composed elements and subjects in her frames. Her photographs take the viewer into a semi-supernatural universe: exploring contrasting shapes, contorting the boundaries of perspective, and embracing the myriad organic and synthetic textures.
