Camping in the south Camping in the south
  • Camping in the south

  • I wish I were one of those people who remembered places and names really well (or at least marginally well) but I'm just not.  So during my trip to the south earlier this summer with my friend Sophie, I cannot exactly tell you where this was (without[...]
My cousin My cousin
  • My cousin

  • My sweet little cousin. I didn't know the extent of my love for you until I lost you. I took this picture of you while we were on a family trip together in Moscow in 2006 and I remember this moment clearly. You resisted, as most of my family me[...]

  • Sister's family in New York

  • As they say in Russia - someone must have died in the forest. Because something crazy has happened. But it's true. My sister let me post a picture of herself on my blog. I wouldn't dare make it the first one, but it is the third one, so scroll scroll[...]

Grandpa Grandpa
  • Grandpa

  • This year when I was home for the holidays I noticed the same phenomenon that started happening about a year and a half ago, right around the time that my grandmother left my grandfather to live in a nursing home. My grandfather, who has always been[...]
Jess, the dalmation Jess, the dalmation
  • Jess, the dalmation

  • A little step away from the busy wedding month, but not too far away. Here is the bride wearing a polka dot wedding dress. She is a little older for a typical bride. She also likes to bite if you got a little bit into her personal space. Meet Jes[...]
Elie Wiesel Elie Wiesel
  • Elie Wiesel

  • Recently I saw Elie Wiesel at a convention and was really excited to take a few shots of him as he was talking to his fans after the lecture. I know I read "Night"... I might have read one or two other books by him but I can't remember them. Anyway, [...]

Emma, the American bulldog next door Emma, the American bulldog next door
  • Emma, the American bulldog next door

  • Dogs are definitely one of my passions. Not dogs that are dainty and pretty (although those will pass as well), but more dogs who are clumsy, maybe have a hard time keeping their tongues in their mouths, who will step on you (by accident and out of [...]
The final product - a DVD with color corrected images The final product - a DVD with color corrected images
  • On a farm with my neice

  • This is a short photo-music clip that I feel may be the start of something new for me. I really connect to music in general and feel rhythm pretty well. To me the merging of visual and audio is very natural. This is a totally experimental piece th[...]
It's All About the Content It's All About the Content
  • It's All About the Content

  • I once took a videography course where the teacher kept reiterating one point: it's all about the content. It's true in photography as well. No matter how beautiful the lighting, or how sharp the image, the photo is just not going to be interesting[...]
Back to the 1920s - Governor's Island Back to the 1920s - Governor's Island
  • Back to the 1920s - Governor's Island

  • The Governor's Island, which is close to lower Manhattan, hosts a 20s Jazz themed concert during the summer (which you can get to on a free ferry from Manhattan or Brooklyn). I ended up there by total accident, but luckily had my camera. Here are s[...]
Strong genes Strong genes
  • Strong genes

  • During my recent vacation to Hilton Head beach, I got to photograph Isaiah (and his dad). I love how every pose they got into, they looked identical from the back. And that is hard to do when the size and degree of being clothed varies so gre[...]
