Yigal
Thanks so much for visiting!
I'm a photographer based out of New York City. 
My passion is street and city photography as well as capturing candid moments and expressions in interesting environments.

I have had a deep fascination with photography from very early childhood. I was born in the former Soviet Union, where photography was never considered to be an art form and was not taught in institutions of higher education - therefore I never considered photography as a possible career choice back then. 

A camera has always been by my side. Every time I pick it up, I'm overwhelmed with excitement. The feeling is still the same as it was 40 years ago, when I first experienced the weight of a bulky Soviet-made camera, looked through the viewfinder and played with various knobs and settings on my uncle's camera.
Photography is my true passion, and nothing can ever replace it in my heart.
I use both digital and film cameras and I feel that both formats have their advantages and strengths. 
My print collection consists of only limited editions, and each photograph is individually numbered and signed. I use a well-established professional lab for printing and I always make sure the paper and print quality are consistently high.

If you have any question, please feel free to message and I will reply within one day.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
