I’ve always loved history. In my imagination, historic events and stories were represented by pictures. I wanted to see pictures of events, battles, and persons that were part of the history of this land, the holy land.
Photography, to me, is capturing a split second of the present which will form tomorrow’s history. The camera is my way to be part of social, political and human events occurring around me and gives me the opportunity to be part of this history.
