I am passionate about image. To me, an image is not only a mirror of reality but also a personal interpretation of it.

I strongly believe that the image is built by both the one creating it as well as the one admiring it. An image conveys perception, both personal and profound, rooted in one’s own experiences.

I am seeking beauty not in conventional charm but in a messy lock of hair, in a smile revealing gently uneven teeth, in the sun stained skin. I love forests, winter morning’s light, elderly people as well as children, the smell of autumn fire’s smoke and the sea. Whenever I photograph any of these, I am doing a silent portrait of my inner world.

This is my quest for beauty. Anywhere. In anything. You are welcome to join my path.
