Considering myself as a purist I study light with perseverance. I feel deeply attracted to the surrealism of everyday life and the poetry of ordinary things which I strive to reveal through photography. I choose among the materials that reality provides me those that can be used to create my own reality, my photographic world. After all photography is a lie, the photographer’s lie, and it can only speaks about him.
