Self-taught abstract photographer.
Through many years on the road in nature, always on the search for the unusual motif, the moment that appears, disappears and never returns in this secret world.
The "Cow Piss" serial of photographs was one of the major themes I was working on those days. Fascinated by finding "Heaven in Shit" and hypnotized by all the colors and forms, I got a sort of addiction to the abstract world.
Nature is a great teacher. It taught me the value of the moment, and that everything around us is in a never ending constant change.
But change happens not only outside of us, but also inside of us.
Even though my love to nature was unbreakable, I still had a feeling of emptiness inside of me. Being only an observer, didn't give me the satisfaction I was looking for. I wanted to be physically part of my works, and the question "How can I make real photographs, without using any photo manipulating programs?" didn't give me peace. I never was interested in perfection, and the boundless possibilities of the digital world.
Humans make mistakes...maybe God is perfect...but we aren't.
I wanted this humanity being reflected in my works.
A simple chocolate box, filled with some sort of aluminium foil, gave me the inspiration for the beginning of my journey. After seeing my hand reflected in this box, I started with making compositions of each daily object, and taking photographs of the reflections that appeared at the upper side of the box. The aluminium foil gives the distorting effect, but also the possibility to leave some details sharp.
Just like life is: having the wish for security, but also the freedom to dive into the unexplored mystical ocean.
The result of the past three years of work are the Pop-Abstract and Memories serial of photographs
