Message from Dov
This website contains a modest collection of pictures that represent my photography work. Each one of these images is a record of an event or a view that impacted me and is a technical replica of what was ingrained in my memory.

Today, because digital cameras are so accessible, it is easy to snap an endless number of pictures. Anyone with a smart phone can “point and shoot” a picture. In my work, I try to avoid these snapshots and capture only those images that talk to me. I learned this practice from my late father, who was an avid photographer, many years before the invention of digital photography. At that time, photographers used expensive film and developing services, so every shot had to count. You would think twice before you pushed the shutter. It forced you to select and compose the picture before you took it.

The challenge of every professional photographer is to create an image that can talk to the viewer and convey a message or emotion. I endeavor to create images from what my eyes observe, not just see. Hopefully, some of the images here will tell you their own story.
