כל העולם כולו גשר צר מאוד, והעיקר – לא לפחד כלל” : רב נחמן מברסלב”
“All the world is a very narrow bridge, and the most important thing is not to fear at all.” – Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
Thirteenth Knight Photography:
Shalom Aleichem, I’m אליאס יוסף from Syracuse, NY currently in western United States. 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 up their advice, bought a DLSR and didn’t look back.
My photography mainly are from my travels, but I occasionally do portraits for my friends and their friends. 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, in each shot I try to bring what I seek as the sparks within the world.
