Artist's Statement: Photography can be many things. To some it is a form of expression, to others a means of documentation. I use photography as a means to communicate to others my interpretation of the world around me. A picture should provoke a feeling. With each photograph I make, my final goal is to create an image that conveys what I sensed and felt and what made me want to press the shutter release to capture that fleeting moment in time or place. Shooting the picture is often only the start of the creative process. Although I generally do not add or remove anything significant from my pictures, I use many digital imaging techniques to enrich and enhance the final image to mirror my personal impressions and feelings towards the subject. Seeing and being aware of your surroundings serves as the foundation of my photography. All you have to do is look and I’m always looking. Bio: Born 1943 in Finland. Moved to Israel in 1962.
