Artist Statement

Photography is true copying, it is illustration. The illustration of reality, the reality in context and its change in it. The illustration of a presentation, the capability of telling a story, of inspiring. Inspiration, creating new imagination. 

 Photography is contact and approach. Photography is an encounter. 

 Photography can touch your heart. It can enlarge horizons, and not only the photographer's, but also the viewer's. Photography is allowed to be powerful and also to show weakness. 

 This is my point of seeing, my claim, my demand.
