Artist statement

My intention is not only to document my items. I want to interpret what i have seen and experienced. Camera’s image is just a starting point to some discovery work. Experimental expression is most interesting for me at the moment. I call those images abstract photos.

However, I think abstract expression in photography is more complicated than in other arts. Basic mission of photography is to represent something existing, and the photographer just digs it out. Abstract photo expression is more conceptual than a strict rule what such photo is or is not. The relevant thing is to see different way.

Like Minor White has said: “When you approach something to photograph it, first be still with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence. Then don’t leave until you have captured its essence.”
