When I was a little child, I received an analogue camera from my father. Ever since then, I haven’t stopped taking photographs.
Today, after many years of experiencing, I have found my style and I try to convey my thoughts, fantasies, dreams, etc. by way of photography.
What fascinates me in photography is the magic, the black and white effect and the contrast between light, dark and shadows. This fascination extends even further to old buildings and cars, objects, mystical places, nature, feminine forms and everyday things that are easily missed by the human eye.
The chosen photographs undergo as little photo retouching or manipulating on the computer as possible. The result is a collection of authentic photographs.
The purpose of my photograph are not only to awake someone’s senses and cause to think but also to tell a story, slightly provoke and even make someone chuckle.
Creativity and implementation are more important to me than technical perfection.
In a place very dear to me, I read a phrase as a child which
had such an affect on me that it has, today, become my pseudonym and motto. Esse Quam Videri: Be real and not one who only appears to be. »
