It’s hard to tell. I still got problems with calling myself a photographer… I’m more like a guy who loves to take photos. Anyway I have been taking photos for almost 3 years now.
4) How did you get into photography?
It was my father who introduced me to analog photography when I was around 10. I still got photos from my first fashion oriented session with a cousin of mine: I was 12 and she was 7 at that time. While being in high school I got movie camera and got totally obsessed with it. At that time I was grazy about possibility of capturing movement and was making surreal mini movies. After some time I got bored with it and switched to photography. That way I came back to my roots.
5) Where your inspiration comes from?
People, places, sounds, light, nature, dreams… Everything I experience is inspirational in a way

Street photography is raw, real and quick. It’s all about being in the right place in the right time.

I like to concentrate on the relationship between me, my model and environment and try to capture something unnamed, uncontrolled and fragile.

Recently I started a project called magnetic.elements. It’s a kind of a diary where I collect certain photos that are importent to me.
