Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Sheldon Serkin started shooting street photos of the people around him in New York City when he got his first iPhone four years ago. It's not the camera that's made him an Internet star, though. Rather, it's his great eye and his penchant for catching strangers in picturesque moments. But NYC is not Serkin's only photographic playground. With family roots in Israel, he also brings his special brand of photography there from time to time.

From the Grapevine recently chatted with Serkin about his photography career, what he loves about taking photos in Israel and what's next for him. He also shared these images he caught on camera during a 2013 trip to Israel.
