Approaching photography for the very first time in 2008, my work derived from the intention to depict reality and to shape an expression for my emotions. “Playing”- this was the resource, and I have thought of photography as a window to look out into the world and at the same time a mirror reflecting what I was holding inside.
I like to create stories with an underlying sense of narrative, to introduce elements of the past and present in my projects. I am interested in the authenticity of a moment, in the relation between a human being and the space around him. I am interested in ordinary situations. I always see a mystery behind them.
