My abstract artwork is about catching the vital energy supplied by light and bringing it magnified to the viewers.
Following my near death experience in my childhood, light became later naturally the central theme and the driving force as well of all my creations.
By making my camera travel in time and space, I create fairy-like imaginary worlds mostly from ordinary objects. I use my camera as a purely experimental tool. The metamorphosis of the subject is achieved directly during the capture without the need for computerized retouching or effects.
The emotion is central in my photographs. I take a deliberately aesthetic and sensorial approach to bring additional wellbeing to the audience.
My project is to mix photography with other forms of Art.
