"I try to reveal alternative perspectives and artistic interpretations of the world around us. I don't just document through photography, but rather try to add something unexpected to the reality both on the spot and in post processing. I want that my photographs make me dig and uncover something fresh and novel behind all the self-evident observations.
In everyday life it's so easy to get stuck into habits and routine mindset or even routine emotional reactions. I'm always most delighted when I succeed to surprise myself - either emotionally or intellectually. In photography this often means finding a point of view, perspective, detail, mystery or interpretation that I didn't think about at all when first approaching a subject.
By taking and then making photographs I try to find the essential elements that speak to me in a scene. My aim is to squeeze the reality out of everything unnecessary and focus only to things that matter to me at particular moment. Curiosity is everything!"
All the photographs in my portfolio are sold worldwide as fine art prints. Some of the images can be bought directly from my shopping website as open edition prints. If you'd like to buy limited edition fine art prints or have any further questions/comments please contact me directly.
