About Thirteenth Knight Photography

Thirteenth Knight Photography™:
שלום & سلام, I’m אליאס יוסף from Syracuses. I was born in China, grew up in Canada, then came to the United States. I’m Jewish and I’m שומר מסורת/Masorti. I’m a U.S. Navy veteran, and took up photography after a few trips abroad with my point-and-shoot that yielded some unexpected but stunning photos. Photographer friends of mine said I have an eye for it, and I took their advice, bought a DLSR and that’s how Thirteenth Knight Photography came to be.
As Rebbe Nachman of Breslov once said: “Seek the sacred within the ordinary. Seek the remarkable within the commonplace.” My photos are my attempt at this Chassidic wisdom as in each shot I try to bring what I seek as the sparks within the world.
