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 a finite number of 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 map of the place and people. Currently, I am working on projects in the Salton Sea, in California, and Bahia Province, in Brasil. China captivates me and I hope to work on a project, there, one day.
