Water fervently guards itself against air and light. Whenever these two sneak in its dark abyss, the water devours them. Yet water's power gives in to the human beauty, releasing the light and air it held captive. When a weightless beauty wrapped in light and air bubbles shines before my camera - the camera takes pictures on its own. I am just holding my breath.

Alex Sher 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 her photo lab. She never mentioned his name - just a guy who could make any woman beautiful with his camera. I envied this guy. I wished my grandma would say that about me some day. He knew some secrets this photographer and he took these secrets with him to his Holocaust grave.
Many years have passed. I've travelled around the world, changing jobs and cameras, taking pictures of the most beautiful people and unbelievable things. Through my life journey I hope to hear some day: "He is a magician, he makes life beautiful with his camera".
