Once upon a time, when wheels were made of stone and phones had no cameras, lived my grandma.  I loved my grandma and loved her stories about people and places she remembered.  There was one story about a photographer grandma was telling in the photo lab waiting for the pictures to develop.  Grandma never mentioned his name - just a guy who was a magician. He could make any woman beautiful with his camera. 

I envied him. I wanted to be this guy. I wished my grandma would say that about me someday. He knew some magic secrets; this photographer and he took these secrets with him

to the Holocaust grave. 


Many years have passed.  I've traveled all around the world, changing jobs and cameras, taking pictures of the most beautiful people, and absolutely unbelievable things. And through my life journey, I still hope to hear someday: “He is a magician, he makes life beautiful with his camera.”
