Nothing is more exciting than the perception of the decisive moment.

About photography and me

IMG_1623.jpg

Photography is like meditation for me. I love searching for motifs, and immersing myself in scenes while enjoying the tranquility of the moment. Quietly observing and inspired by everyday scenes, I depict them in my predominantly high-contrast images. Light and shadow are the essential elements of my photographic work. Often straightforward, preferably minimalist, sometimes geometric, and sometimes unusual in terms of perspective. I like to show individuals in their urban environment, but without foregrounding their personalities. In the end, I create narrative and harmonious compositions with the aim of being remembered by the viewer.
A good photo does not have to be perfect, but the attempt of telling a story should be recognizable.
