STATEMENT

Photography to me is mostly an individual way of looking at the world, observing reality through the prism of frame and composition. The difference between what one sees in reality and what can be seen in a picture, which can be considered a glimpse of the world captured by a photographer, is fascinating. What I find most interesting in photography is documenting a given part of the world in my own way. I take with me the places I photograph, forever present on my pictures.
