I love photographing Bar/Bat Mitzvah’s.
There is something very exciting about this occasion for parents and their children. On this day people show lots of excitement. Unlike wedding events, Bar/Bat Mitzvah’s are more intimate, since the whole event is about children and also because it is a one family event, and does not include two sides of the family, like weddings.
It is very important for me to tell a story and every family will have a different one. Each family and its roots. Each family and its ceremony. It is a privilege for me to take part, with my camera, in the relationships between a child and his parents, siblings, grandparents, etc.’
A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a major event in Judaism and I feel a great honor every time I get the opportunity to capture these memorable moments.
