I do not call my self a photographer. I consider my self a traveler or a observer because that is what I am. My pictures representing my life puzzle. Every picture is a little piece of my life story. What I see in my life travel and during my life path. If I would use for my self the word photographer, would not be in the way people use the word but in it’s true real meaning. The word is Greek and means drawing the light… So in me that I very much care for the meaning and the power of words and moreover that the word means something to me because is in my language, photography is representing a travel to light. The pictures I make are little pieces of my life puzzle. My puzzles of photography are pieces of my life drawing path to light. And even it’s a hopeless destination of a travel I choose to travel to the light. So I draw my travel to light in each picture.
Photography is my truth and gives me the opportunity to visualize and to express my feelings, my sadness, my happiness, my light, my darkness or anything that means something to me. The first time I raise the camera in front of my eyes I enter in to a magic world. Like I was looking through a magic window and all the world showed different without any noise around me anymore and allowed me to look the world with all it’s important details and without any distraction. The way it should look in to my eyes…
I have started taking pictures during the summer of 2009 and I have started to process on them at December of 2010 without having any idea how is the correct way to take pictures or process on them. I just took the little compact camera that was given to me as a gift and go out. And still I use a simple dslr camera and a very simple program for process.
