What does photography mean to you?
Photography is my craftsmanship, it is alluring but at the same time lingering. To me, a photography is about creating moods and feelings. It is storytelling through my perspective and interpreted through your eyes. A photography must awaken a mood, a curiosity and a need to want to know more by creating a universe which the viewer is drawn into.
The photography is a respite, a dream and a channel for my creativity to flourish. My photography is simple and aesthetic with a touch of something untraditional and unexpected. A thought that is passionate about becoming a reality. The caption of a perfect moment that is perpetuated.
My inspiration comes from nature. Nature is wild, great and always changing. But at the same time mysterious and honest, when it is raw and naked. Nature is very fascinating to me.
Photography is a great and huge part of me. It’s my passion and lifestyle.
