Loli Kantor is a fine art and independent documentary photographer interested in culture and in the human condition. 

In 2004 Kantor began exploring the subject of Jewish presence and absence in Eastern Europe, both from a personal as well as a universal perspective, focusing mainly on Jewish life in Poland and Ukraine. Conceived as a short-term project, the work has evolved into nearly a decade of a photographic exploration.

Kantor's additional photographic essays trace the creative processes of music, and the performing and visual arts. These include a long-term photographic essay on the Hip Pocket Theatrean experimental theater rooted in the heart of Texas, based in Fort Worth, a project documenting North Texas artists as well as projects involving several theaters and dance companies in Texas and abroad.


Kantor’s work has been exhibited widely in the United States and internationally and her work has garnered numerous awards. Her photographs are included in the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Lviv National Museum in Ukraine, Drohobych Palace of Art in Ukraine, the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, Lishui Museum of Photography in China and The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, as well as numerous private collections in the United States and abroad.

Kantor was Born in Paris, France, and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel.  She immigrated to the United States in 1984 and has lived in the Dallas - Fort Worth area since.
