Artist Statement

“Photography is a significant part of my daily life, filling and charging me with the desire to keep on creating. Every moment of photographing is accompanied with a childish excitement as if it were the first time.

The camera enables me to see life at one frame at a time and to discover a whole world within it; to choose one moment in time, to commemorate it, to hold its beauty, to examine it and see what the eye missed in a glimpse: a speck of dust, a single light, movement of fabric, water…

mostly I love to photograph women, For me a woman is the essence of existence, who is containing, has all the beauty and procraetion, childishneess, femininety and maternity.

שׁשׁAttracted mostly to staged photography, the scenes come to me from love and attraction to beauty everywhere, my sources of inspiration are classic art renaissance, myths, biblical stories, classic literature….

I see my photographs as describing beauty and optimism, both apparently are in the eyes of the beholder…”
