Photography is a magic palace with many doors leading to new discoveries of places, people, ideas... but more than that - they lead to exploration of self, a spiritual odyssey. Photography as means of artistic self expression opens doors not only to alternative perspectives, new modes of seeing and learning but it takes a step further to broaden horizons for appreciation, esteem, and empathy... it fills a space between what 'was' and 'is', 'a question' and 'an answer', 'void' and 'true', 'a mare chance' and 'an obelisk'... it documents the journey of one's soul fighting the ocean of choices... until the undecided and cynical shade of character no longer protects one from natural beauty.
Most of us are inclined towards introspection and we related to photography through our own subjective perspective. Thus, I wish a photograph to be poetry - to evoke intense feelings, to reach and move the spirit, to communicate and connect with spectators despite their demographic contexts. I like to photograph scenes with all of the emotion of light, texture, shape and perhaps movement that the nature is capable of delivering. Emotion, with a poetic tone of voice… mirror the far-reaching inspirations... Perhaps for this reason I particularly enjoy exploring the intimate landscape and its seemingly minor details as much as portraying a human face, up close, telling a story of a many words with one image... These intimations of the natural beauty conjure a stream of visual associations and emotions and are my favored subjects.
