Nitsan Tal was born and raised in Israel, in a Kibbutz.
Her grandfather, an avid amateur photographer, gave her her first SLR camera together with Dark room equipment, and sparked her first interest in photography.
Nitsan studied veterinary medicine in Israel and moved to the U.S. in 1998. The proximity to New York City allowed her to take classes in photography while practicing as a veterinarian. She studied at the New York Institute of Photography and the International Center of Photography.
In 2008 Nitsan established her photography studio in Closter, New Jersey.
Nitsan’s personal work is documentary in style with emphasis on the human condition. She has special interest in the work of nonprofit aid organizations and donates her time and services to NGO’s around the world.
In 2013 Nitsan filmed her first documentary film “It Takes Balls”, the story of an actor who likes to portray women. The film was shown in several festivals in the U.S.
She since completed two more documentary films: “Writers Matter” (2015), about a non profit organization working with inner city school children in Philadelphia, and a short film “8000 Paperclips and One SKYPE call”.

In the summer of 2012, one year after the declaration of the independence of South Sudan, the South Sudanese community was deported from Israel to their young country. The small community, just over 700 members, 500 of which are children, has found itself in one of the poorest countries in the world facing challenges they were not prepared for. Shortly after their arrival, most of the children became ill, Many of them had witnessed and suffered violence, hunger and other senses of insecurity.
Refusing to accept this destiny, a group of South Sudanese parents and their Israeli friends decided to start this project aiming to send the children to a boarding school in Uganda, This way the children could benefit from a safe educational environment, while we continue to work toward a long term sustainable educational solution in S. Sudan.
On February 2013 the first group of 35 children boarded the bus in Juba en route to Kampala to start their new school year. Since then the project grew immensely thanks to hundreds of donors, and it now accommodates approximately 200 children studying at boarding schools in Kampala. Come True is a unique project because it sees the large educational picture, and yet relates to each child as an individual. Since many of the families are still in an unstable situation, finding it hard to provide for their children, we offer these children a year-round solution, covering all their needs, both during the school year and on school breaks.
The Come True organization is in dire need of additional sponsors and donors.
