“I present artistic expression through photography by including unique relation to the unknown and by doing so I do not wish to limit myself to various genres and subjects; however, my work is based on current inspiration. In my separate series, a world of fiction can be found, presenting the challenged reflection of everyday life. My subjects are simple, which proves the sole way of presenting the idea to the observer. The subjects are ambiguous, should they be surprising, unusual or ordinary, I enable the observer to create their own interpretation and their own stream of thoughts.”
