What interests me is not taking pictures, but creating images. In my opinion, an artwork must embody an idea and arouse not only aesthetic and emotional receptors, but also intellectual ones.
My abstract images are created as digital collages from several shots where shapes, texture, and color produce a completely new imagery. The aim is to ignite the viewer the same way as when one listens to music. I prefer the 'less is more' approach which, along with symbolism, leaves room for a variety of interpretations.
I was born in the former USSR, but presently divide my time between Israel and The Netherlands. Passion for photography and art history has constituted an important part of my life since childhood. I got my first camera and darkroom equipment at 14. Self-taught as a fine art photographer, I learned from the great artists of the past, as well as from the contemporary artists through art books, photography magazines, and visits to art museums and exhibitions. Inspired by new technological opportunities, I have nowadays switched to digital photography.
My works have been exhibited in the Migdalor gallery in Old Jaffa, Mansohn House in Tel Aviv, and in the Art Photography show at The 14th Festival of Israeli Cenimatography in Paris.
Another aspect of my endeavors is promoting art education
