I was born in Czechoslovakia to parents who survived the
Holocaust. My parents had less than half a dozen photos
left after World War II. That fact had a strong impact on
Photos are a vital documentation of our experiences, our
culture, our history and most importantly our memories.
Ever since I came to America in 1958, I have been
intrigued by the capturing of memories and moments in
time on film.
Freezing images in an artistic and expressive way,
recording and preserving memories, telling a story and
sharing it with others; all of these are a deep passion of
mine. Beauty is all around me waiting to be captured.
Translating this beauty into an image brings me much
fulfillment and satisfaction.
As a result of what happened to the Jewish people in the
past decades, I feel challenged to show others who my
people are – their culture, their religion, their expressions.
I deeply love the land of Israel and look for ways to
present both ancient and modern images. Through the
years, I have been fortunate to share my passion with
young people. Our travels to Israel and Poland allowed us
to photograph our experiences and create our own
memories. My own travels to the Soviet Union, Europe,
China, Brazil, Lebanon and of course the United States and
Israel has allowed me to do what I love best: share
moments in time.
