ABOUT ME

Look, I'm not
an intellectual – I just take pictures.

Artist Statement

Photography is usually considered as a way to convey reality but staged photography tells us a different truth. It is the courage to find your point of view on familiar things and to create worlds that momentarily flash with inner magic and tell us their stories.

 

Photography is a bit like cooking: you take ingredients and mix them - color, characters, props, surroundings - and you get a new world with inner strength and secret life.

 

For me, this is an opportunity to combine reality and fantasy, to let them be embodied in something new. The shooting process, inspiration from models, generation of ideas - all this gives me the feeling of an endless carnival where everything is possible and there is a place for the strangest days and unexpected decisions.
