About Me

"Self Portrait"
Jerusalem, Israel, 2015

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've been a frequent contributor to The Jerusalem Post. Other publications and venues have included:

     Lens Magazine (featured photographer, February 2018)
     The Times of Israel
     Krakow Jewish Community Centre, Krakow, Poland (solo exhibition)
