I am a self-taught Israeli photographer interested in portrait, art nude and still life photography. I had an extensive experience in black and white film photography since age of 15, and spent a lot of time in a darkroom. Therefore black and white remains for me the main stream in my digital photography as well. Photography isn't my profession, though it is my great passion through which I express my thoughts and myself. I offer to my models the exciting photography experience that gives them a rare opportunity of showing their beauty and expressing outward their inside depth, emotions, and sensuality. I am trying to give people a chance to break for a moment away from the world outside and concentrate on that one, which is inside, showing the more vulnerable and intimate sides of life My understanding of photography as well as my way in it is perfectly described by one sentence of Peter Adams : "Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field."
