Daniel Rolider was born in December 1995 in Kiryat-Tivon, Israel.
He began his photographic career in 2012, while studying mechanical engineering in high-school, when he had published a photograph in the Children's Eyes on Earth book, a collaboration of IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action) and the Iranian photographer Reza.
Since then, his work has been published in the New York Times, National Geographic Travel, PDN, Musée, the Israeli Photography Blog of Haaretz, and as a cover story in Yedioth Aharonot about his journey to Mount Olympus, Greece.
In March 2018, as part of Sheikh Abreik Festival, he took part in the international Inside Out initiative of the French artist JR, documenting the Jewish and Arab population of his home town and the neighbouring town, Basmat-Tivon. The photos were printed as huge posters and pasted overnight across Kiryat Tivon. The project was covered and aired by Kan News channel.
In October 2019, his project Ballad for the Carriage Horse has been published in PDN Photo Annual 2019 as a winner of the Students category.
His work has been exhibited at Beit HaHayal in Tel Aviv in 2015, in a solo show at the Israeli Art Gallery in Kiryat Tivon in 2016, at Jaffa Art Salon in 2017, and at Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece, Elbaz Gallery in Hudson, New York, and Haifa City Museum, Israel, in 2018, at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, at the Maritime Silk Road Expo in Guangzhou, China, and in a solo show at Chelsy, Tel Aviv, in 2019.
