My name is Chen and I am a scientist and photographer. My interest in photography started around 1990 with my Dad’s Konica “Auto S” rangefinder. I took this camera with me on family trips and even on several duty patrols when I served in the Israeli Defense Forces.
Me, holding the Konica “Auto S” rangefinder, my Dad’s old camera. Photo was taken on December 1990 three weeks before “Desert Storm”, the US-Iraq war.
Later, I was gifted with an entry level film SLR which I used to learn photography by experimenting. Since then, my photography knowledge was acquired solely by reading photography books, participating in online photography forums and shooting a lot. While science satisfies my intellectual curiosity, photography fulfils my creative, imaginative and visual passions.
This blog is my digital dark room street photography exhibition, experimenting with compositions and techniques, and as such presenting stuff that may be partly “cooked”.
In parallel, my other online exhibition is through my Instagram account @sqrpix or through my photo website: http://www.cgp.co.il.
