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 my life.
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.
