ABOUT

 

I am a photographer based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the United States. Born in Israel, I spent my childhood and young adult years in Canada. Having received an MFA degree from the University of Calgary, in 1990, I worked in mixed media sculpture installation and, later, printmaking. I grew up with a father who always seemed to carry a camera by his side but never did I imagine that I, myself, would become serious about photography after the age of 50. Yet, after leaving the visual arts for two decades I came back to it, full time, with a love for photography inspired by my passion for travel.

Perhaps part of the reason I am so taken with photography is that the medium is a voyeuristic one; I am a voyeur at heart. Photographs permit us entrance to other worlds. Returning to specific places again and again allows me to delve more deeply, follow my own connection with the subject, and attempt to understand what goes on beneath the surface. I try to capture small truths in my photographs, with the aim of drawing a visual and emotional map of the place and people. Currently, I am working on projects in the Salton Sea in California and Bahia Province in Brasil.
