About Me

"Self Portrait in Mirrors"
Warsaw, Poland, 2018

The great American philosopher Yogi Berra said, "You can observe a lot by watching."  I agree.

I strive to capture poignant, humorous and beautiful images from simple encounters with people, wildlife and our surroundings.

While there are many excellent examples of fictional images in the photographic art world today, I prefer the truth of real life experiences.  None of the depicted scenes was elaborately staged or designed on a computer.

My photographs have been exhibited in numerous and diverse settings.  I was a featured photographer in the February 2018 edition of Lens Magazine.  Other publications and venues have included:

     The Jerusalem Post
     The Times of Israel
     First Station, Terminal Cafe, Jerusalem, Israel (solo exhibition)
