Jaffa South-Western part of the city, Tel Aviv-Jaffa, includes a port on the Mediterranean Sea, and it is also one of the most ancient port cities in the world. It is said that Jaffa Port hosted shipments of wood sent by King Hiram of Tyre on rafts, for the building of the first and second Temples.
North of the port a beautiful beach stretches and connects the modern Tel Aviv It is in this from the port to the beach that a metamorphosis takes place, as the people vary in their appearance custom and behavior. This "Timeless" image is one example of such occurrences.
Morris Alkalay embarked on his photography career when he started work for a Marineland where he fulfilled duties as an aquarist and. He was involved with aquaria, marine mammals such as dolphins, sea lions, as well. Later he was promoted to be the curator of the establishment.
Actually his love and interest for photography dates back to a diving safari in 1976 at a time he did not yet have an interest in photography. There, he observed divers attending an Underwater Photo course. He was thrilled by the whole magical process. Determined to purchase an underwater camera the next day, he was unaware of the many problems he would encounter. Underwater photography was difficult, especially for a person who was not a photographer. He had to study to overcome phenomena such as refraction, scattering, and even framing, much easier to achieve above water. When he "reached surface" he felt he became a better photographer, confronting new challenges and continuing to learn all the time.
One thing lead to another, he attended various courses, and assisted advertising photographers whenever possible. He then established his own business -- a Photo studio providing a variety of services such as product photography, as well as a commercial lab. that serviced other photographers and hi tech businesses.
Lately specializing in fashion and beauty photography while maintaining a variety of commercial photo services, you can still find Morris underwater, visiting his small or large aquatic friends, frequently, with his camera, as they willingly model for him in exchange for small handouts.
