Personal statement:

I strongly believe in sincere photography where the subject matter is valued above any artistic messages of the photographer. Building personal visual relationship with the object I always try to reveal it through my work as it is, eliminating any interference from “a point of view”. For me photography is about “what I have seen”, not “how I see”.Participation in DEAC Projects
