I WAS BORN IN ISRAEL IN 1961. MY FATHER WORKED FOR AIRLINES SECURITY AND WAS POSTED IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD. TO EVERY LOCATION HE WAS STATIONED HE TOOK THE FAMILY WITH HIM INCLUDING ME, MY MOM, MY BROTHER AND TWO SISTERS.
AT THE AGE OF 7 WE MOVED TO QUEENS, NEW YORK, USA.
ONE OF THE HAPPIEST MOMENTS I CAN REMEMBER IN LIFE IS MY 10TH BIRTHDAY WHEN I RECEIVED AS A PRESENT FROM MY PARENTS MY FIRST CAMERA. A KODAC INSTAMATIC CAMERA.
WHAT MY PARENTS DIDN'T KNOW IS THAT TO GIVE ME A CAMERA IS EQUIVALENT TO GIVING A COWBOY A GUN. I SHOT EVERYTHING THAT MOVED IN ANY DIRECTION.
UNTILL I GOT USED TO THE LIFE IN QUEENS, MY FATHER NOTIFIED US AGAIN THAT IT'S TIME TO PACK OUR BAGS AND MOVE TO VICTORIA ISLAND IN BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA.
EVEN THOUGH I WAS SAD AND DEPRESSED TO LEAVE THE HOME I WAS SO USED TO AND ESPECIALLY NEW YORK AND QUEENS, THE TRANSIT TO BRITISH COLUMBIA AND LATER TO ONTARIO, OPENED NEW WORLDS FOR ME.
IT WAS THE EXACT THING MY PHOTOGRAPHY CAREER NEEDED, SWITCHING FROM AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT TO VAST NATURAL SURROUNDINGS.
UP TO THIS DAY I CONTINUE TO EXPLORE, DISCOVER AND DEVELOP.
THE CAMERA HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY CLOSEST FRIEND, INSEPARABLE FROM MY ARMS.
I WILL SHARE WITH YOU MAGICAL MOMENTS IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND ASPIRING PLACES AROUND THE GLOBE.
I HOPE YOU WILL BE TOUCHED, INSPIRED, AND MOVED BY MY WORK.
