Where are you from?
I live in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Why did you want to become a Photographer?
For me photography is a state of wonder, the kind of wonder that you feel as a little kid, seeing the world for the first time, telling yourself stories about it, sometimes scary ones, sometimes crazy ones, always interesting ones. The camera allows me to see the world that way again, to look at it from different and unique perspectives and to find new meanings in the ordinary.

Why did you choose this particular shot to be your favorite photograph?
Choosing my favorite photograph wasn’t easy. I finally chose this one because it illustrates perfectly what photography is for me. One day I found a little decorative water pool at the entrance of one of the buildings nearby my house in Tel Aviv. The pool was faintly illuminated from below with a red light that made it look mysterious. When I pointed the camera at it I discovered that it could be a portal to another dimension, don’t you agree?

Anythingelse you want to add?
Don’t be embarrased to bend, crawl, climb, etc. to take the photo you want, even in a crowded street. People may look at you funny, but who cares, they are the ones who miss a great perspective 🙂
