WHAT DO YOU DO?
Honestly I think I do not name my photography style. I could say it is something like illustrative and conceptual, emotive and minimalist. Well, I could describe my “art world” like a space where I deny the laws of physics and erase the border between conciseness and dreaming. The world, where impossible becomes evident, and the perception of reality is shifted to its next level. I perceive photography as an unique space located in a balance and serenity. My work exists in that narrow space of few seconds between dreaming and awaking.
WHY ARE YOU DOING IT?
Well, I would say that photography discovered me. I have never studied photography. I have to say that I lost one of the closest person in my life (R.I.P) 6 years ago and I felt like I had to express my self somehow. I felt like I needed to find something like a “valve”. So I started taking photos and somehow it works. At the beginning I took it as someting like a therapy which became my passion. So it is quite weird and strange saying that this accident inspired me, but this is only the way how I was involved into photography.
WHAT / WHO INFLUENCES YOU?
It was the accident it happened to me, it is daily usual moments that stop me and make me think and makes my especially happy, it is a smell of autumn that makes me so peaceful. The music is huge inspiration too. I can’t imagine creating my photos without music like Lisa Gerrard, Olafur Arnalds, Asaf Avidan, Antony and the Johnsons or Sigur Rós for example. They are never ending stimulus.
I feel how much daily usual moments become my inspiration. Somethig like dust grains floating in the light of sunset – wow, thats something what I could stare at forever. Or the smell of the autumn – those short 3-4 weeks when the nature is prepapring for sleep, all those leaves falling from the trees, this is it. I know it could sound quite silly and childish, but I love these daily moments.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?
I have created my own way, my own style during my way to being professional photographer. It took 5 years. It was worth it. I had over 60 exhibitions around the world, I won over 40 international photography awards, I am still only 28 year old, but I do not know what will be tomorrow. Honestly? Only being happy. Thats my one and only plan for the future.
