I am deeply interested in the history of art and how it relates to the history of our culture as a whole. The evolution of aesthetic viewpoints and how it relates to the history of photography and film are some of the fundamental issues I explore in my work.
Although I work mainly in still photography I feel that using the correct medium for a specific project is important. It is the concept that matters most and using the appropriate materials to convey the specific idea is critical.
From landscapes and its details to people and places and all the ways that i see them - through a lens, within a frame, the way light feels and colors act, a scene, an environment, how a shadow angles itself against a wall - these and many more are my subjects, my objects of fascination.
