He was drafted into the Israeli army reserves, the subject of his first book of photography, poetry, and essays.

Carol Radsprecher’s images combine figurative and abstract elements. She earned her MFA in painting from Hunter College, CUNY. A longtime painter, she discovered the wonders of digital image-making and found that media well-suited to her need to make a succession of rapidly-evolving narrative images based on distorted representations of the human body, especially the female body. Her work has appeared in several solo shows and numerous group shows, and has been published in print and online publications.
