I am amazed by the light and shape, the detail. For me it is everything, the focal point, centre of my attention.
I believe that art is always around and as artists our mission is to make it just a little bit more visible.
I love photography because it helps me to share what I cannot express with word, like an extension of my mind, eyes and tongue.
Project "Artists during quarantine"
This spring (2020) I was in Italy and experienced Italian lockdown full speed. But I was lucky, because I spent it in the world of ceramics art. I participated in the project for the London gallery MadeInBritaly. The project is about artists during quarantine, how they live, what they do. My part was about the famous Italian sculptor Andrea Salvatori. The way he works, which projects are taking his attention during this historical times.
I think everyone is beautiful. Seriously. The secret is to look at people with genuine interest and appreciation. To see behind the shapes of eyes and lips. I am not a big fan of studio set-ups and pretending to be someone else. I like to see the beauty in the reality. That excites me. The biggest pleasure for me is when a person looks at a photo and says something like "The whole life I thought I am not photogenic and was hiding from cameras. But look at me! I am beautiful" and goes on with more self-respect and confidence.
